Babangida made the call yesterday when former governor of Sokoto State and a presidential hopeful on the platform , Alhaji Attahiru Dalhatu , Bafarawa visited him in Minna, Niger State . Though the duo had held a closed- door meeting lasting for an hour , the outcome was , however , kept secret. But it was gathered that they may have discussed the forthcoming primary.

It was learnt that Bafarawa might have sought the support of the erstwhile leader on his political ambition . Babangida , however , told the delegation that PDP could not afford to go through another round of crisis, thus the need for fairness and transparency in all of its dealings , including the upcoming primary .He noted all the aspirants seeking the party ’ s nod were capable of leading the country out of its current predicament .

The retired military leader described Bafarawa as an upright and honest man with intimidating political credentials to pilot the affairs of the nation .“Your recent triumph at the court over corruption allegations is a clear indication that you are a honest and transparent person, and Nigerians need someone like you , ” Babangida stated .

Bafarawa had intimated his host that he entered the race to rescue the country from the prevailing insecurity , hunger, injustice and impunity .However , the PDP said President Muhammadu Buhari ’ s alleged poor understanding of current global economic dynamics and protection of humongous corruption were responsible for the accumulated N22 trillion.
