“Let me shock you: before I came into government, I have been in business. I was a very successful businessman.
“I am a world renowned IT consultant and I have a very large farm, spanning over 1,000 hectares, which I abandoned to join governance.

“I was earning N930, 000 monthly as the SGF, now that I have returned to my farm and reactivated it after my sack, I now have 4,000 hectares under cultivation.
“Last year, I earned close to half a billion naira from my farm proceeds. I have a cattle ranch that I am developing gradually and I am back to IT consultancy, life is now good. ”

According to him, , a lot of people he helped in the past were actually the ones that planned his downfall.
Referring to the scripture, the former SGF said; “everything that happened to a man is for his own good; my sack I would say, is rather a blessing in disguise.

“Let me tell you, nothing happened to me. Right from the beginning of the saga, I knew that the whole thing was fabricated and that was why I did not give any damn from the beginning.
“The reason some people don’t like me is because I am so confident of myself.

Did you hear me defend myself that time?  I didn’t do it and I will not do it because I know that they are fabricated. ”
Babachir said that he had however, forgiven all those who wanted his downfall, adding:”forgiveness is my number one principle because I want to make heaven.”

He debunked insinuations that he nominated Boss Mustapha, the incumbent SGF, saying: “he is however my brother and I cannot deny him”
