Why I’m Yet To Remarry – IBB



2023: Nigeria’s Next President Must Understand The Economy – IBB

Nigeria’s former military president, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB), has explained why he has not remarried since the death of his late wife, Maryam Babangida.

The wife of the former head of state, Maryam died December 27, 2009 in the United States of America after battling ovarian cancer.

Maryam was admitted at the University of California’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center in Los Angeles.

Babangida in an interview with Arise TV on Friday stated that he is yet to marry another woman due to his choice of selection.

“They don’t like my face (he said while smiling)…Honestly, it’s not easy,” he said.

Babangida while speaking on his closeness with people across Nigeria, said he is a simple person.

“I feel comfortable wherever I am. Whether Minna or Lagos, I easily make friends. I don’t disown people no matter what happens,” he added.

The former military president when asked if he has any regrets said he can not come up with any.

“We left the office 28 years ago. When I look back, I think we were right. We didn’t do badly, maybe we were misunderstood,” IBB said.
