Activist and Publisher, Omoyele Sowore on Friday criticised former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd), for endorsing Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to contest for the office of president in the 2023 general elections.
POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that Babangida had on Thursday expressed his support for Osinbajo when a pressure group, Osinbajo Grassroots Organisation (OGO), paid him a courtesy visit at his Hilltop Residence in Minna, Niger State.
“I know the vice president very well. He is a good man. I have spoken with him a couple of times; he is a good person. We need a good man like Osinbajo at the helm of affairs of this country – someone people can learn from; someone people of goodwill share a common conviction with. He has this great passion for the country and I want other Nigerians to emulate his passion for the good of our country,” Babangida had said.
Reacting, staunch government critic, Sowore fired Nigeria’s past and present rulers.
“Retired, Sick and Tired Babangida “endorses” cowardly Baba Kekere Professor Yemi Osinbajo and he’s jumping all over the place. Why not ask IBB why he couldn’t even get to two PDP party primaries? Jokers!” he wrote on his verified Facebook page.
