I want to make this clear. This piece is not a defence neither is it an apology. At the end of the day it might turn out to be a clarification.
Of course I am talking about the now famous trip to Minna by some media executives to chat with former Military President General Ibrahim Babangida. The trip has been made famous following allegations that the General gave the ‘malleable’ editors 10million Naira to support his presidential bid.
The charge did not state if the 10 million was for all the editors or each of the editors. Before I give further details on the money issue, let me give a little background to the trip.
When I was invited to a chat with the former military President ahead of his 69th birthday and that he would also seize the opportunity to talk about his Presidential bid, I thought it was a good opportunity to assess the man up close and ask him some serious questions to which I believe Nigerians would want answers
