Mohammed Babangida’s New Move



Mohammed Babangida, the eldest son of Nigeria’s ex-military President, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, is a good strategist. Also, as a good and experienced “gambler”, he knows when to throw the dice and when to quit.

Spyglass gathered that the younger Babangida who many thought would contest for Niger State governorship election in 2015 has finally made up his mind to serve his people in another way. This time, the polo-loving dude will want to represent his people at the Senate come 2019. In fact, a source hinted that he had received the blessings of his father, some elders as well as stakeholders across his constituency.
While many claimed that he wanted to ride on the crest of his father’s popularity, his loyal fans denied the allegation, claiming that his philanthropic gestures as well as his humility have endeared him to the hearts of many in the state.
In 2015 the handsome man consulted far and wide over his governorship ambition and sent an emissary to his father to support him. But according to a source, his father neither supported him nor kicked against the idea. This, therefore, made him jettison the idea, even when it was obvious that he had many supporters who were ready to do his bidding.
We gathered that Babangida is well-loved by many in the state, as they see him as a good material that will someday step into his father’s shoes.  (Thisday)
