I’m through with presidential ambition, says IBB

- Admin

 Former military President Ibrahim Babangida said yesterday his time for seeking the presidential seat was up.

The general said he would work with other northern governors to emulate Sokoto State Governor Aliyu Wamakko’s agricultural skills acquisition programme for the revival of agriculture in the region.

He said: “If that is done, the region would have made tremendous breakthrough and boosted its economic strength.”

Babangida, who visited Second Republic President Shehu Shagari, spoke in Sokoto when he inaugurated a Modern Agricultural Skills Acquisition Centre at Milgoma, Bodinga Local Government Area.

The centre is among the various projects executed by the state government and inaugurated by the former military leader across the state.

Babangida was accompanied by AVM Hamza Abdullahi (rtd) and Hassan M. Jalo, among other personalities.

He said: “The stage is now for the likes of Wamakko.

I want to be convinced that Wamakko is working based on what we have seen.
