A former Nigerian military President, Ibrahim Babangida, has said there would not be any military coup in the country again.
Speaking in an interview on Channels Television’s Inside Sources on Friday, the former military leader stated that military interference robbed Nigeria of true federalism and development.
He said: “I think that is (failure to achieve true federalism) one of the effects of the aberration that the military regime, it countered the democratic process.
Babangida, however, said that as a military leader, he freed the economy by allowing the private sector to be the hub of the economy of the country.
Nigeria witnessed a lot of military incursions in its politics after independence, with men in uniform ruling the country for more years than civilians until 1999.
