February 01, (THEWILL) – Former Vice-President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar on Tuesday, visited former Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida, in Minna.

The former vice-president also held a closed door meeting with his host at his hilltop residence, Minna, Niger State.

Though details of the meeting which lasted for close to an hour was not made known, but THEWILL however gathered that, the meeting may not be unconnected with ongoing consultation by Atiku on his 2023 Presidential ambition.

Atiku who is yet to make a formal declaration, had taken the Presidential shot twice under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), but failed.

Atiku from the Hilltop drove to Government House, where he paid the state Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello.

Speaking with newsmen after the visit, the former Vice President said He was in Government House to pay a sympathy visit with the Governor over the incessant insecurity situation confronting the state, especially in the past few months.

“I only came on a courtesy visit to the Governor and to commiserate with him and people of the state over the incessant Banditry in Niger state.

“I just discussed with the Governor on the insecurity in the state and from what I heard, it is a very serious and pathetic situation and it is most unfortunate”, Atiku declared.

When asked about his Presidential ambition, Atiku said he would make it known when the time comes.

“I have only come on a visit. I will let you know about my Presidential ambition at the appropriate time”,  he declared.
