IBB Authorised Anti Buhari Statement....Spokesman
Babangida’s spokesman, Prince Kazeem Afegbua said this in a television interview on Sunday, on the tail of a denial by Babangida and his issuance of another watered down statement.
Afegbua told Channels Television that the second statement personally signed by Babangida denying the first one was done by some of Babangida’s friends who did not want him to confront the Buhari administration.
“I have been doing this job for about 14 years now. And I have never issued a statement on behalf of the former head of state, which he rebutted. I got authorisation and commitment from him before I issued the statement. It has been in process,” he stated.
Afegbua said Babangida called him after the second statement went out.
“He has called me to say that the statement still stands,” he said.
“Of course, you know IBB is for everyone. People want to love him more than he loves himself. People want to appreciate him more than he appreciates himself. People want to play the role of IBB.
“So when the statement was released, some of his friends saw it and they felt we were trying to put the former president on a collision course with the president.
So, they went and did a statement to deny that.
