Oct 8, 2014 – “I’ll Return To Nigeria Soon” – Says Ailing IBB Babangida From Germany Hospital Bed
Ex-military ruler Ibrahim Babangida who was recently airlifted to Germany for medical treatment is set to return to Nigeria any moment from now.
General Babangida, who spoke on telephone with journalists at Governor Muazu Babangida Aliyu’s Tunga residence in Minna yesterday when General Abdulsalami Abubakar paid the governor a Sallah homage said,”I am now well and will be back to Nigeria very soon.”
He however didn’t provide a specific return date.
While speaking through Gen Abdulsalami’s phone, IBB said “I miss all of you, I wish you all Barka de Sallah. I am better now and I will be back in few days’ time.
The two former military leaders normally pay Sallah homage on the state governor annually but this year, General Babangida is currently receiving treatment in a foreign country.
This past week, Niger Governor Aliyu sent delegates to visit Babangida in Germany.
