Olusegun Obasanjo, Ibrahim Babangida (IBB) and Abdulsalami Abubakar, all former Presidents of Nigeria, held a secret meeting in Minna yesterday. It was later disclosed that they met to discuss the state of President Buhari’s health.
Justina Asishana, The Nation correspondent revealed that the former presidents were concerned about the state of President Buhari’s health and decided to meet to discuss on how to intervene.
After the meeting, they agreed to pay Buhari a visit to find out the true nature of his health.
The Nation also revealed that they were concerned over the politicking of Buhari’s health — which they said is a threat to national development.
They were also not pleased about the contradictory statements by the president’s media aides, and they plan to talk to Buhari about it.
President Obasanjo and General Abdulsalami would go for the visit alone because General Babangida’s state of health will not allow him travel.
The meeting lasted for two hours and ended with a prayer for the health the Buhari and Babangida.
The meeting was so covert that people who usually frequented IBB’s house were not allowed in ahead of the meeting.
Governor Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello received Obasanjo at Minna airport and accompanied him to IBB’s home where he joined the host and General Abubakar.
