Former military President General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida has thrown his weight behind the presidential ambition of Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki.

Babangida said in supporting Saraki’s presidential bid, he was only returning a favour the senior Saraki paid him during his own presidential ambition.

“it is my turn to do what your father did to me,” Babangida said when Saraki visited him in Minna, on Saturday, as part of his nationwide campaign tour for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) convention.
Babangida also added that he will treat Saraki as his own son and ensure that he succeeds in his bid.

He pointed out that “I will rightly observe that you are my son, for coming to pay a courtesy visit. I remember when I was still in office, I spoke with your father, Oloye Saraki, who always provided advice on a number of things attached to this country.

“He always made himself available to me, to give advice and encouragement which will move the country forward. Your visit is historical. Now, it is your time and turn to come to me and I will do just that.”

Earlier, Saraki told General Babangida that Nigeria is now at a crossroad following the high level of hunger, insecurity and killings across the country.  (The Sun)
