Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi, a presidential aspirant and immediate past Caretaker Committee Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) paid a visit to Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida.
Speaking at his Hilltop mansion, IBB said Makarfi restored his hope of a new Nigeria.
“I was almost losing hope in the country, but having heard from the distinguished senator, I have become more enlightened and emboldened to say we have hope in Nigeria”.
“Without fear or favour, you have made my day”.
“We need a new narrative in this country. We can’t go on like we used to. We need an articulated vision of a new Nigeria. I am not surprised that you give such narrative of the country. You did well in the legislature and you handled well one of the most civilised and sophisticated states in Nigeria”.
“You have my blessings and I will look forward to hearing from you on some of these articulations I heard from you today. Honestly I feel so proud”.
His visit maybe related to his numerous consultations in a bid to be PDP’s flag bearer in 2019 presidential election.
