IBB reveals why is yet to remarry

Babangida IBB

Former Military Head of State, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB), has given reasons why he is yet to remarry.

IBB’s wife, Maryam, died December 27, 2009, after battling ovarian cancer.

In an interview with Arise TV, Babangida suggested he was yet to marry another woman due to choice of selection.

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

Speaking on his closeness with people across Nigeria, Babangida 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.

Asked if he has any regrets, IBB said he could 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.
