Jonathan Visits IBB In Minna


Immediate past President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, on Wednesday visited former Military Head of State, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) at his Hilltop residence of Niger State Capital where they both reportedly had a closed-door meeting.

He was said to have been accompanied by former Senator Nimi Barigha Amange, who had represented Bayelsa East in the National Assembly.

 “Only former Jonathan and Babangida were in the meeting,” the source said adding that “even former senator Amange waited in another part of the residence”.

It was gathered that the meeting between the duo which started a few minutes after 10.00am did not end until about 12.14pm.

On his way out, Jonathan declined to speak to newsmen describing his visit as “private”.

When pressed for comments, he said he had not seen Babangida since he returned from medical vacation and felt it was the right time to do so.

He commended the press for “doing a nice job, you people are doing well” he said.

Asked to comment on the prevailing political situation in the country, he said: ”we are retired politicians” and drove off.
