Gen. Babangida said he respected Obasanjo’s endorsement of Mr. Obi in his New Year’s letter to Nigerian youths.
He wrote on Twitter: “Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo will forever be a true elder statesman and a boss in the military. No serving General in the Nigerian Army today joined the military earlier than 1982. By then, Obasanjo had already finished his military career. I respect him a lot, with his endorsement.”
