IBB Denies Warning Tinubu Of Military Takeover

A former head of state, Ibrahim Babangida has denied reports that he warned President Bola Tinubu about a potential military takeover.

In a statement released by his media consultant, Deyemi Saka, Babangida dismissed the reports as baseless and unfounded.

“I wish to address the circulating reports originating from VoP Radio Station, suggesting that former Military President General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida GCFR has issued a warning about a potential military takeover should President Bola Ahmed Tinubu not exercise caution.

“I would like to clarify to the general public that these reports are baseless and the result of unfounded speculations by certain individuals with malicious intent.

“General Babangida has always been a staunch advocate for democracy, both during his tenure and since leaving office.

“He firmly believes that democracy is the superior form of governance, and that electoral processes are the legitimate means for changing a government or expressing dissatisfaction or support,” he said.

Saka added that “should General Babangida have any concerns regarding the nation’s affairs, he would utilize his rightful place in the Council of State to voice them, rather than resorting to social media or public gatherings.”

He then urged “the responsible regulatory authorities to thoroughly investigate and take necessary action against VoP Radio Station and any media outlet engaging in such reckless dissemination of misinformation, which poses a threat to our national security and stability.

“Members of the public were advised to “dismiss these unfounded reports.”
