Lamido In Secret Meeting With Abdusalami Over Presidential Ambition
Former Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido, has met with former military Head of state, General Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd).
The meeting was part of Lamido's consultative meeting with former leaders of the country concerning his presidential ambition in 2019.
Lamido, who is aspiring for the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, was in Minna, Niger State on Thursday.
The meeting, which was held at the Minna Hilltop residence of the former military leader, was held behind closed doors and it lasted for about two hours.
Although, Lamido did not address newsmen after the meeting, but sources said the two leaders discussed extensively about 2019.
Before the commencement of the meeting, security details attached to the former Head of State ordered press men out of the venue explaining that the visit was private.
Lamido made a similar visit to former military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, about two months ago, as part of his nationwide consultations on his presidential aspiration in 2019.
Lamido was expected to run against President Goodluck Jonathan for the presidential ticket of the PDP in 2015 but he withdrew when Jonathan was adopted as the sole candidate of the PDP.
