Former Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida is very much alive and bubbling, his media spokesperson, Prince Kassim Afegbua has said.
Prince Afegbua made this declaration in a press statement in Abuja yesterday in reaction to the rumours of the death of the Nigeria’s military ruler between 1985 and 1993.
Babangida, the statement said, was busy attending to friends and associates who came to see him yesterday, Sunday, 15th December, 2019, at his Minna Hilltop mansion in Niger State.
One of the earliest visitors to the Hilltop mansion yesterday was former Senate President, Senator David Mark.
According to the statement by Afegbua, “IBB is very much alive and bubbling. He just started attending to friends and associates who came to see him today, Sunday, 15th December, 2019 right here at his Minna Hilltop mansion.
“He is full of life and in his characteristic bubbling mood”, it said.
The Media Spokesperson to Babangida noted with regrets that it has become a consistent fake news for quite some time now for some people wishing IBB dead.
The statement reads in full: ‘It has become consistent fake news for quite some time now wishing our own IBB, the one we easily refer to as “the last don” of Nigeria politics, dead.
“The “fake news bill” would be a suitable response to this category of fake news carrier.
“IBB is very much alive and bubbling. He just started attending to friends and associates who came to see him today, Sunday, 15th December, 2019 right here at his Minna Hilltop mansion.
“He is full of life and in his characteristic bubbling mood.
“May Allah forgive those who wish IBB dead. God is the giver and taker of life, not humans.
“Death, as the irrevocable end of all creation, will surely come to everyone some day and at the appointed time and hour, but to deliberately spread fake news and wish someone dead, is to take humanity to another bizarre level. May Allah forgive them.
“IBB, by the special grace of Allah, the omniscient and omnipotent One, shall live to fulfill his journey and destiny in life, to the consternation of those who are always wishing him dead. This is about the third time this year.
“We wish to thank those who took time to reach out to us, home and abroad, to find out the truth.
“We thank you all for your love, care and concern. May Allah grant us all good health, sound mind and long life. Amin”, it said.
