IBB Says He Cancelled June 12, 1993 Poll Results To Prevent Violent Coup

Babangida Returns To Nigeria After 7 Week Medical Vacation In Switzerland

Former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida has said that, his military regime annulled the June 12, 1993 presidential poll to prevent a violent coup

He also canvasses that Nigeria’s next president must be in his sixties, to cope with the challenges of ruling the country

Babangida, speaking on a television programme said that, during the June 12, 1993 poll won by late Bashorun MKO Abiola, his regime was under intense pressure from within and outside the military to cancel the poll

Ahead of 2023 presidential poll, Babangida asked Nigerians to consider the qualification and beliefs of candidates

According to him, any candidate seeking to succeed President Buhari must have a good understanding of Nigerian economy and be a good politician, who can relate with the people

The former military general said, he still believes in Nigeria and contends that, Nigeria will never become a one party state, opting for a two party system introduced by his military regime in the nineties

According to him, Nigerians will resist a one party system through demonstrations and protests
