Details of the meetings were scarce at the time of this report, but it is believed that the visit could be in the spirit of the Eid-el-Kabir, an Islamic festival that was celebrated across the globe on Monday, September 12, 2016.
Jonathan reported the visit on his Facebook wall saying: “As I visit my elder brothers and predecessors in office, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida and General Abdulsalami Abubakar, I am further committed to building bonds of unity for Nigeria!”
Meanwhile, speaking at the Central Mosque in Minna after the Eid-el-Kabir prayer, Abdulsalami Abubakar, urged Nigerians to stop vandalising government installations and infrastructural facilities.
