Former Military President Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) has explained how he was nicknamed “evil genius” and “Maradona”.
Babangida, disclosed this while speaking with Leakblast TV during an interview on Friday.
He explained the nicknames were manufactured by the media because of his “deft political moves”.
Babaginda said: “That’s the very good thing about the Nigerian media and Nigerian people, you have to anticipate them.
f you anticipate them then you live well with them. They call me ‘evil genius’, I marvel at that. The contradiction — you can’t be evil and then a genius”
“The definition of Maradona I got from the media is because of deft political moves. That’s the way the media described it.”
