Former military President, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, failed to show up for accreditation during Saturday’s governorship and state assembly elections and by extension stayed away from voting.
At the close of accreditation, the former military leader who performed his civic duty during the March 28 presidential and National Assembly elections was conspicuously absent.
The first son of the former leader, Mohammed and his younger sister, Halimat were however accredited.
No reason was given Babangida’s absence at the polls, but a source close to him said his relationship with the fathers of the two leading candidates may have been responsible for his action.
The two candidates are children of retired senior military officers.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Abubakar Sani Bello, is the son of Col. Sani Bello, a former military governor of old Kano State, while the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flag bearer, Umar Mohammed Nasko, is a child of Major Gen. Gado Nasko, a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory.
Another source at the Minna Hilltop residence of the Babangidas said the former military president was just resting at home.
“Oga is at home and he is yet to come down. He is in good condition, there is no problem with his health. He has not come down today, but he is in good health and spirit,” the source stated.
