IBB and Atiku

Former Vice President Abubakar Atiku is in Minna the Niger State Capital where he is meeting with former military president Ibrahim Babangida.

He was received at the Minna Airport by the Deputy Governor of Niger State, Ahmed Ketso, the Head of Service, Yabagi Sule and the State PDP Chairman, Barrister Tanko Beji and other party members.

Also on ground to receive him was a crowd of supporters.

He arrived the Uphill residence of the former military leader at about 12:40 PM and is currently holding a meeting with General Babangida.

 While the purpose of Atiku’s visit is not yet clear, there are indications that it may not be unconnected with his political ambition ahead of the National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party scheduled for December 9.

His visit comes less than two weeks after he defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mr Abubakar contested against the president, Muhammed Buhari alongside three others for the ticket of the APC in 2014.

He lost out in the primary but collapsed his structure to support the president at the 2015 presidential campaign.

Atiku was the vice to former President Olusegun Obasanjo when Nigeria returned to democracy in 1999.

He left the PDP to join the APC in February 2014, after he lost the presidential election of 2007 on the platform of the then Action Congress.

While he was in the PDP, he also declared his intention to contest for the Presidency in 2011 but lost to former President Goodluck Jonathan.
