Speculators are already suggesting that three former Nigerian leaders, Olusegun Obasanjo, Ibrahim Babangida and Abdulsalami Abubakar who met Tuesda behind closed doors in Minna, the capital of Niger State, did so principally on issues surrounding the health of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Newsroom learnt that the meeting which lasted for over two hours was held at the hilltop home of Babangida.
It was also learnt that visitors who usually besiege Babangida’s house were streamlined, with some of them stopped from entering the house ahead of the arrival of former Obasanjo at about 3:00pm. Before the arrival of Obasanjo, Abubakar was already waiting in Babaginda’s house.
On arrival, Niger Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello, recieved Obasanjo at Minna airport and took him to Babangida’s home at the hill top without official retinue.
After the usual pleasantries, the closest domestic and security staff in the house were excused from the inner chamber at the time the meeting went into closed door.
It was also gathered that the Niger State governor who initially received Obasanjo later left the three former leaders who met for over two hours before Obasanjo left the state at about 6:00pm.
The former leaders may have also discussed other crucial national issues.
