The meeting took place at the Hilltop residence of the former military ruler. Saraki landed at Minna International Airport at about 4.10pm and drove straight to the hilltop home of the reclusive former leader.
It was not clear whether Saraki discussed his presidential ambition with Babangida. At a press Conference after the meeting, he sidestepped the question. But he did not outrightly deny nursing the ambition. He said he would answer the question on another day.
