Why I've been quiet about Nigeria – Babagida
Following calls by Nigerians to past leaders to speak up about the state of nation, the former Military President, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, IBB, has admitted he is taking a long time in writing his memoirs because he is scared of being sued.

IBB, disclosed this during an interview he granted Channels Television on Friday night.

He noted that he wanted to do a thorough job of it.

“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,” Babangida said.

When asked of his friends’ opinion about 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.

“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.”
