Barely 48 hours after its registration by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the All Progressives Congress (APC) may have commenced its membership drive in earnest with a visit yesterday to the Minna country home of former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida, in what political observers believed to be a move towards wooing the former leader.
The team was led by former Speaker, House of Representatives and now Deputy National Chairman of APC, Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari. Others on the entourage include former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Alhaji Nasir El-Rufai, who is now the deputy national secretary of the new party.
The former leader, who received the visitors at the entrance to his office, later led them to his office where they had a closed door meeting. Security details of the former military president, however, advised journalists hanging around the house to excuse Babangida and his guests.
