On Tuesday, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar allegedly had a closed door meeting with former military head of state, General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd), at the general’s residence in Minna.
Atiku who arrived Minna Airport by afternoon around 12:40pm was received by Alhaji Abubakar Bello, the Governor of Niger State.
He reportedly proceeded to IBB’s residence for the closed door session which journalists were barred from.
Speaking to newsmen after the meet with the former leader, Atiku said that he came to wish IBB well after his arrival from medical trip abroad.
“I have come to visit General Babangida and to wish him well after his arrival from a medical trip abroad.”
Regarding his advice to the Federal Government, Atiku noted that he was in government before and giving advice to the government on pages of newspaper will be disfavor to them.
“Any advice that needs to be given to the government should be given confidentially because using the public or media as a means to advice the government will simply be a great disservice to them.
“If I have to advise the government, it will be in confidence because I was in government before. My advice will not be on the pages of newspapers.”
