With the 2019 election season fast approaching, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on Sunday visited former Military President, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida at his hill top mansion in Minna, Niger State.
There was a huge crowd waiting for the former Vice-President in Minna as he made his second visit to IBB since declaring his intention to contest the 2019 presidential election under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The crowd – which waited for Atiku for over four hours – were however prevented from entering the mansion as Atiku drove past without acknowledging them after his meeting with Babangida.
An aggrieved supporter, Nabila Mohammed, who spoke with TheNation, said: “I am not happy at all because we have been waiting here in the last four hours. He could not even wave at us. This is a man we have been fighting for, he just came out and ignored us, he is not fair to us but we will support him.”
Details of the meeting between the two leaders have not been made public.
