The National Caretaker Committee Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Ahmed Markarfi and the Chairman of the PDP National Elective Convention Committee, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa Wednesday visited former military President,  General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida at his Uphill residence in Minna.

The duo came along with Taraba state Governor, Darius Ishaku, Senator Obi and Senator Abdul Ningi.

The group arrived the Minna International Airport at about 1pm and headed straight to the Uphill residence of the former military President.

Newsmen were not allowed into the indoor meeting that lasted more than an hour.

However, The Nation gathered that the purpose of the visit may be related to the PDP National Convention coming up on Saturday.

A Source in Babangida’s house said that the Chairman of the Convention and Delta State Governor was said to have assured the elder statesman that all aspirants would be given a level playing field stating that the convention would be hitch-free.

After the visit to Babangida, the team visited the Niger state Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello at the Government House in Minna.

Attempts to speak to the Governors at the Government House also proved abortive as they said that they were on a private visit to see a fellow colleague.
