Ex president Ibrahim Babangida reveals he is searching for a new wife


Nigerian former miilitary President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, rtd or IBB as he is popularly known has disclosed that he is on the lookout for a new wife.
In describing the kind of woman that will suit him at this stage of his life, IBB reported he will not take a wife much younger than him because that will be a problem for the woman and for himself.
The 78-year old former Head of State, speaking to The Sun however let out the fear that the new wife may not be able to live with him the way he lived with his late wife and former First Lady, Maryam.

The Asaba Delta-born Maryam who was credited with creating the position of first lady in Nigeria died on Sunday, December 27, 2009, succumbing to ovarian cancer at the University of California’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, Los Angeles. She was at the time aged 61.
In IBB's words;
“Yes, I am quite sure. I’m searching and I’m hoping. But the longer I wait, maybe, the more problematic it becomes.
“If it drags, I would be too old and the whole idea of having a partner would seem to diminish. But I will make sure [I have a partner] before reaching that stage.
“If somebody is in the corner, you could organize that in three or six months.
“And because it must be somebody you have known for a long time, or somebody you have been in contact with for a long time, you don’t just tell them look this is for marriage
“But as time passes, and relationship building continues, it could end up in marriage.
“However, I have to be fair in my search. I really want to be fair. For instance, you don’t expect me to take a wife much younger than I am because that will be a problem for her and for me.
“I have to be fair. Secondly, I do wonder if she (the chosen one) would be able to live the way Maryam and I did, which is not easy these days. So, I keep on praying; and I think it will happen" he added.
