The Governor of Bayelsa State, Hon. Seriake Dickson, and former Military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida met behind closed door in Minna, the Niger State capital, on Wednesday, 15th day of March 2017.
The meeting took place at the retired General’s Hilltop mansion. According to reliable sources, the meeting was centered around the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party. Babangida is a founding member of the PDP, while Dickson was elected governor on its platform.
Dickson, who did not speak with journalists after the meeting, which lasted about one hour, was said to have driven off immediately it ended. Dickson was said to have met alone with Babangida in his private study, away from the prying eyes of aides of both politicians.
The source said: “The Governor, after an hour, came out of the meeting and did not disclose the purpose of the visit, but instead got into his car and zoomed off.”
