Goodluck Jonathan Visits Ibrahim Babangida and Abdulsalami Abubakar

September 14, 2016, 2:05 am

Former President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday visited two of his predecessors privately in Minna, the Niger State capital.

Dr. Jonathan’s visit to former military President Ibrahim Babangida and former Head of State Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar sparked speculations on the purpose.

There was no statement on the visit to Minna Hilltop, where the retired generals have their mansions.

Jonathan spent about one hour at Gen. Babangida’s residence. He held a private discussion with him for close to 45 minutes, it was learnt.

He proceeded from there to Gen. Abubakar’ s residence.

 

Jonathan was accompanied by former Minister of State (Finance) Bashir Yuguda  and his one-time Chief of Staff, Chief Mike Oghiadomhe.

Jonathan made a terse tweet on the Minna trip on his handle @Gejonathan, writing:

“As I visit my elder brothers and predecessors today, I am further committed to building bonds of unity for Nigeria!”
