Former President Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday visited former military President Ibrahim Babangida (rtd), who last Saturday returned from eight weeks medical treatment in Germany.
Obasanjo also met with his estranged Vice, Atiku Abubakar at Minna International Airport, where the two leaders buried their differences and hugged each other.
Findings revealed that Obasanjo was in Minna to visit the recuperating Babangida while Atiku, who had visited the former military President was in the town to attend the Presidential declaration of Mr. Sam Nda-Isaiah of All Progressives Congress (APC).
Obasanjo, who arrived in a plane, with registration No. G DOUR, along with Senator Andy Uba, Chief Ayo Fashawe and an unidentified lady at about 4:30pm was about to be conveyed to IBB’s house when his attention was drawn to the presence of Atiku at the airport.
The former Vice-President, who was already seated awaiting clearance for his flight, had to stop the pilot, alighted and headed straight for the waiting car to ferry Obasanjo out of the airport, where the two leaders hugged each other.
A black BMW car, with registration No. ABJ 01 RJ, then took Obasanjo to the uphill residence of the Babangidas, in company of Mohammed Babangida.
At the IBB residence, journalists were barred from entry, but a source within told our correspondent that Obasanjo only came on solidarity visit to IBB.
The two leaders met only for about 30 minutes before Obasanjo left for the airport.
