2023: Babangida denies endorsing Obi for president

The former military president, Ibrahim Babangida has denied claims of endorsing Peter Obi, as president for the 2023 general elections.

In a recent tweet by a parody account (General_Ibbro), the former Military Head of State was quoted to have supported the endorsement of Obi by former president Olusegun Obasanjo.

“Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo will forever be a true elder statesman and a boss in the military. No serving General in the Nigerian Army today joined the military earlier than 1982. By then, Obasanjo had already finished his military career. I respect him a lot, with his endorsement,” the tweet reads.

When contacted, spokesperson to the former military leader, Prince Kassim Afegbua, denied that his principal endorsed Obi, saying IBB doesn’t have a Twitter account.

“It is not true, please. Ignore the report of the endorsement. IBB doesn’t have a Twitter handle.

“If he is going to speak, it will be through a signed statement, not Twitter. Those behind the Twitter statement are liars,” he said.
