Despite a series of denials last night in respect of the statement issued by former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida, his spokesman Kassim Afegbua, has said the statement stands.
The former president had on Sunday followed suit with former President Olusegun Obasanjo in criticising the Buhari regime and asking it not to seek a second term.
But he was said to have quickly issued a rebuttal, wherein he canvassed a return to a two-party structure in the country, saying that was the only way to guarantee democracy in the country.
Speaking on Channels Television programme Sunday Politics, Afegbua said the former president stood by his statement.
He said he had been speaking for Babangida for years and that his statement has never been denied.
Afegbua said there was nothing personal between Babangida and Buhari and that the statement represented his position on the state of the nation.
