Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan yesterday paid a private visit to two of his predecessors in office in Minna, the Niger State capital.
The purpose of Dr. Jonathan’s visit to former military President Ibrahim Babangida and former Head of State Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar was a subject of intense speculations on social media yesterday.
The immediate past President of Nigeria first visited General Ibrahim Babangida and after about an hour proceeded to the residence of General Abubakar. He was accompanied by former Minister of State (Finance) Bashir Yuguda and his one-time Chief of Staff, Chief Mike Oghiadomhe. No statements were issued at the end of the meetings.
Former President Jonathan first broke news of the meetings through a tweet from his twitter handle @Gejonathan, writing:
“As I visit my elder brothers and predecessors today, I am further committed to building bonds of unity for Nigeria!”
