A Wikileaks cable release at the weekend, reveals that former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida, played double standards with former President Olusegun Obasanjo and his former deputy, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, with the aim of positioning himself for the position of president.

The Wikileaks cable said Babangida took advantage of Atiku’s leaning on him against the backdrop of any shortfall from a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) investigation on the former vice-president.

“He deceived the latter into thinking he had listening ears, when in actual fact, he plotted to relay the information to Obasanjo in order to cause a rift between him and his former boss,” the cable said.

The cable allegedly classified by Consul General, Brian L. Browne, for reasons disclosed that a long-standing consulate contact said pro-Obasanjo hardliners in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were eagerly waiting information from the FBI that would incriminate Atiku.

“In his political distress, Atiku is reaching out to former Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida (IBB).  The contact, who is close to Babangida, said this is the type of situation in which Babangida thrives.  Babangida will secretly support Atiku, while informing Obasanjo of some of what Atiku is up to-this way hoping to score points with the President,” Wikileaks said
