Former Nigerian Head of State, Gen. Ibrahim Badammasi Babangida (Rtd.), in a press conference, told newsmen that he is hale and hearty.

IBB said this at his Minna Hilltop residence, where he held a briefing to dismiss rumours of his death.

He said “As a Muslim, I have the belief that every one of us must die; it could be now, it could be hundred years or in two days, it does not matter. Everybody must die, and to me, the death rumour does not shock me; it is not something to worry about.”

IBB said he was not shocked by the rumours, adding that death was inevitable for every human being.

Speaking on the state of the nation, the former Head of State said he believes that Nigeria will overcome any challenge it is facing right now.

IBB also said “I still believe very strongly in this country; that is further demonstrated by the people themselves.  The calibre of people the Nigerians are, they are very industrious people, so with Nigerians possessing this quality, it keeps my hope going for Nigeria.”

“Yes I think so. I believe very strongly that the country holds a very beautiful future for us and you younger generations,” he added.

General Ibrahim Babangida removed Major General Muhammadu Buhari in a coup on August 27, 1985.
