Ibrahim Babangida Reportedly Hospitalized in Germany




Former head of state, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB) has reportedly been hospitalized in Germany.

He was rushed to Germany from his residence in Minna, Niger State ten days ago, according to Sahara Reporters.

Sources allegedly say that Babangida is “severely ill,” and that his condition is as a result of a “chronic back ailment” which  he had previously had surgery for in Germany.

    Oh Babaginda, don’t know if I should pray for him, feel sorry for him or just continue chewing my chewing stick. What happened to the millions this man embezzled during his regime and after? Why does he have to be rushed to germany if he and government official invested in quality health care. Its pathetic how this leaders steal. They steal money that could last their generations a lifetime. Unbelievable! Nigeria should be far more developed than what it is today.

      Admit it, you really wanted to pray for whatever private jet that flew him out to suddenly develop engine failure (or a volcano to erupt & create an ash cloud which stops all planes from taking off) so that he’s forced to make use of the finest healthcare which Minna has to offer, abi? If you won’t admit it, I will… Poetic justice would be seeing these criminals-on-the-loose suffering from the failed systems they’ve helped to create.

      I know the Bible says to pray for our enemies but I’m seriously still working out my grace in that particular area….

      My Sister, grace for kini now?? Even Christ was mad at the Jewish leaders at the time, and as you no holy pass our Saviour, abeg, vex away!!
      Again I say, Prov 11:10 – “…..when the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy…”
      My Yoruba people will say “akutuku e lona orun”…..meaning…”may he die multiple deaths on his way to the grave”…a tad harsh when translated though, hehehe.

    Wishing you had used your time in power to establish a good healthcare system so that you can be treated in your own country, like most other world leaders. For the sake of your family, get well soon sir. Hopefully one less person to meddle with the outcome of our elections next year!

    high time the leaders invest in our health system, and invest in our doctors here. We can achieve 100% healthcare system if our Leaders will just remember that one day they will die.
    Imagine how many lives would have been saved, if you could just dial 911 and an ambulance showed up on your untarred street within 5mins just to give your dad or mum or relative or the woman who sells akara immediate medic care, without been rich. God help us all. Wish him quick recovery.

    I kinda suspected this he hasnt been looking well lately no it is not because he is aging.any way i wish him a speedy recovery in JESUS name amen. @ mz socially awkward not to worry his grace is sufficient for you, as an aside it is extremely diff to pray for ”bad people” but then again all of us are undeserving of grace, and Love but yet GOD loves us inspite of all our messups and excesses.

    If view from the human angle, I don’t think there is anyone who actually known the history of IBB in this country that will want him to return alive… There are many more to go
