Vice President-elect, Kashim Shettima, on Thursday, paid a visit to former military President Gen. Ibrahim Babangida and a former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar.
Shettima, who was in Minna, the capital of Niger State, paid separate tributes to the two former Nigerian leaders during Ramadan.
According to sources close to the two leaders, Shettima’s visits were not unrelated to the incoming All Progressives Congress (APC) government led by President-elect.
