Babangida Explodes

Former Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida (Rtd) has expressed dismay over the way he has been critically criticized. The elder statesmen squealed that… “Nobody has given me credit for conducting the June 12, 1993 presidential election which was the freest and fairest in the history of the country.”

“Nobody has ever sat down to say the two persons are friends, what went wrong? We tried to rationalise why we had to do what we did but nobody is prepared to listen to us.”

“I have never seen anybody write anything on this to try to give people a different version altogether. He (Abiola) knew my feeling; I knew his feeling about the country generally because I do talk about Nigeria with the presumed winner of the truly democratically freest election. We even talked about it during the crisis itself.”

“I hope one day if God spares my life, I will discuss about it (June 12 elections) because I still believe people don’t get what we were trying to put across.”
