Former military President Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida is not disturbed by the continuous rumours of his death and ill-health.
The 74-year-old retired General was rumoured to have been critically ill last week.
Babangida however, said he doesn’t have sleepless nights to muse on about his death, especially because everybody has to die at some point.
Speaking with journalists at his Hilltop Mansion in Minna, Niger state, on Sunday, he said: “The rumour does not shock me; neither does it bother me because I know I must go and meet God, my creator. There is nothing really to worry about, my religion has told me.”
“As a Muslim, I strongly believe everybody will die, everybody will die and everybody has to die. It could be now or in hundred years’ time or two days to come but it doesn’t matter. Everybody must die.”
