By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Nigeria’s first self styled Military President, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, IBB for short, says the release of his memoirs was taking time because he wanted to do a thorough job.
The former military dictator said this while appearing on Channels Television on Friday night, where he also said he was afraid of litigation in the event of making mstakes in his memoirs.
“I am scared of somebody suing me to court to say that I libelled somebody or that I misrepresented somebody and I will spend five years going to court,” he said.
Concerning the issue of being bound by the oath of secrecy to keep some issues to himself, he responded: “Don’t forget, not only in Nigeria but throughout the world.
“For a certain number of years beyond which anybody will punish you, for opening the secret because you have passed a certain period.
On when Nigerians should be expecting the release of the memoir, he said: “It (memoirs) will come but if it doesn’t come my children will go into the classroom and research. Everything that will need research about us we have in abundance. I know that General Obasanjo has a library that is very rich.”
