Former President Goodluck Jonathan held a closed-door meeting with the former military Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida, on Wednesday at IBB’s uphill residence in Minna, Niger state.
 
The meeting between the two leaders, which started few minutes after 10.00am, did not end until about 12.14pm.
 
According to reports, when journalists asked of details of the meeting by journalists, Jonathan reportedly drove to Minna in a GMC bullet proof SUV, declined, saying it was “private and personal”.
 
After he was pressed further, he said he was in Minna to ”empathize with the former military leader on his safe return from a medical trip abroad.”

“I have not seen General Babangida since he returned from medical vacation and I felt it was the right time to do so,” the former president said.
 
When asked to speak on the political and economic situation in the country, Jonathan said he had retired from active politicking.
 
He then told journalists, “you people are doing a nice job.”
