Former President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday visited two of his predecessors, Ibrahim Babangida and Abdulsalami Abubakar, privately in Minna, the Niger State capital.
The purpose of the visit is not known and not statement was made to that effect apart from a tweet from Jonathan’s handle announcing the visit.

The ex-president first visited Babangida’s residence where he met privately with him for about 45 minutes, and from there he proceeded to Gen. Abubakar’ s residence.
He was accompanied by former Minister of State (Finance) Bashir Yuguda and his one-time Chief of Staff, Chief Mike Oghiadomhe. Yuguda is one of several former government officials currently being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
