The former Vice President, who was already seated awaiting clearance for his flight, had to stop the pilot, alight and head straight for the car waiting to ferry Obasanjo out of the airport
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Tuesday visited former military President, retired General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, who just returned from a two months medical treatment in Germany.
Obasanjo also met with his estranged deputy, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, at the Minna International Airport in Niger State.
There, the two leaders buried their differences and hugged each other.
It was gathered that Obasanjo was in Minna to visit the recuperating Babangida, while Abubakar, who had visited the former military President, was in the town to attend the presidential declaration of Sam Nda-Isaiah of All Progressives Congress.
Obasanjo, who arrived in a plane with registration number G DOUR, along with Senator Andy Uba, Chief Ayo Fashawe and an unidentified lady at about 4:30pm, was about to be conveyed to the house of Babangida when his attention was drawn to the presence of Abubakar at the airport.
The former Vice President, who was already seated awaiting clearance for his flight, had to stop the pilot, alight and head straight for the car waiting to ferry Obasanjo out of the airport.
There and then the two leaders hugged each other.
A black BMW car, with registration number ABJ 01 RJ, then took Obasanjo to the uphill residence of Babangida.
Obasanjo was with Babangida’s son, Mohammed.
At the residence of Babangida, journalists were barred from entering.
But a source told The Eagle Online that Obasanjo only came to felicitate with Babangida.
The two leaders were together for just about 30 minutes before Obasanjo left for the airport.
