Aminu Ibrahim Babangida is a young billionaire with a very wealthy father. He is the youngest son of former Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida and late Maryam Babangida.
His siblings are Mohammed, Aisha and Halima.
As a member of the most popular and powerful family in the north, Aminu could be said to be born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He grew up around luxuries only dreams are made of. Babangida is the last son of the famed Nigerian billionaire and former president.
His father, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB) is one of Nigeria’s richest men who garnered military and political power post-colonization at a time when Nigeria unearthed her oil wealth.
Aminu is the spitting image of his father and people close to him say he is also savvy and intelligent like his father.
As military head of state, IBB enriched himself and family with stupendous wealth that even his grandchildren yet unborn will not be able to finish. Babangida is a complex multi-dimensional character. His antecedents as a political leader as well as a military Head of State are well known.

Why is this handsome dude not married yet?
With such impressive profile, it is still puzzling why this handsome dude is yet to be snatched by any of the beautiful daughters of fellow billionaires in the north at least. Or is his signature as a confirmed bachelor a now a permanent feature?
Aminu Babaginda is a guy that could be described as every girl’s dream man. He is young dark, handsome and a billionaire – a combination that is quite irresistible to women.
He is endowed with everything that could make any young woman fall head over heels in love with him. Yet despite his undeniable appeal, he seems to be dodging the marriage institution much to the dismay of his family and friends.
Aminu, the youngest son of former military president Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida seems to have sworn to live a life of perpetual bachelorhood. The current chairman of Unity Bank seems to have decided to remove marriage from his plans, at least for now.
There are lots of speculations why he might have made up his mind to remain single. It is said that his older siblings, Mohammed and Aisha didn’t leave him with good examples for him to follow in the marriage department.
Two of the children of ailing former leader, General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (rtd), have been very unlucky in marriage. Both Aisha, his first daughter, and Mohammed, first son, have been married twice … and divorced twice!
She got married as the third wife of Sarkin Sudan Gombe, Alhaji Auwal Lawal Abdullahi in 2017.
Both are divorced and had traumatic battles and sordid public fights that where quite distasteful. Perhaps that could have made him to be afraid to venture into the marriage institution.
Having witnessed first-hand how the unions of his older siblings unravelled, he is not in a hurry to get into the same situation.
Despite his background and success in his sphere of endeavor, Aminu has not been linked with any woman in recent past.
Though, middle of last year, there were rumours that he was unusually close to fellow billionaire daughter, Oluwafunsho Obasanjo, the daughter of former President, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Dr. Oluwafunsho Obasanjo as she is known, obtained an M.Sc in Medicinal Chemistry, University of East Anglia and an MSc in Medicinal Chemistry from University College, London. She is also appointed as a Non-Executive Director in Unity Bank.
People have raised eyebrows concerning their closeness but it is not confirmed if their friendship is platonic or romantic. “Though there are talks about a possible affair, there is no confirmation of any intimacy between them” a source stated.
Those who are familiar with the rapport between the children of the former presidents, however, insist “they really look good together”.
Both Aminu and Oluwafunsho currently serve on the board of Unity Bank – and some other businesses their parents have interests.
It has also been revealed by those closely watching him that one thing Aminu Babangida is known for is his hinted resolution to remain unmarried and that has got his close family members really worried.
According to ThisDay Newspaper, the young businessman has rebuffed all entreaties to tie the knot even though he is not getting any younger. He is reported to have told whoever that cared to listen that his focus for now is on taking Unity Bank to the next stage of greatness. . He does not want to contend with any domestic issues that can distract him from this goal which he is pursuing with all the stamina he could muster.
It is gathered that relatives, close and distant, are pilling pressure on Aminu Babangida to pick a wife as he is not getting any younger but their efforts may not yield any positive result anytime soon, as the banking professional is not considering marriage, at least for now.
Relatives close and distant are pressing him to go out there and get a girl and have a few more Babangida princes and princesses for his aged father, IBB before he passes on. So far, these missions have failed.
Well, all hope is not lost. Hopefully post Covid-19 might bring good news in that direction. We can’t wait to see the lucky girl that will steal this dude’s heart and make him give up his bachelorhood. Still, there’s no telling what winds the coming months will bring; there just might be an exotic lady prepping to claim his hand. We sure hope so!
