Atiku meets IBB, Abdulsalami Abubakar

The 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, on Wednesday visited ex-military Head of State Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida.

Atiku also visited another former military Head of State Abdulsalami Abubakar.

The former Vice President met both former Nigerian rulers at their respective residence in Minna, Niger State.

Posting on X, Atiku wrote: “Today, I paid Sallah homage to former Heads of State Gen. Ibrahim Babangida (rtd) and Gen. Abdusalami at their residences in Minna, Niger State.”

The meeting is coming amid claims of Atiku preparing to set the grounds for the 2027 presidential election.

In May, Atiku had vowed to continue contesting for the presidency as long as he’s healthy.

He made the comment amid his move to form a coalition with Peter Obi, his counterpart from the Labour Party, LP, and other political parties.
