A former Governor of Kano State, Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, on Saturday night paid a courtesy visit to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar at his residence in Asokoro, Abuja.
Kwankwaso arrived at Atiku’s residence at 8.30pm and went into a closed-door meeting with the former Vice President.
The details of their meeting was not made public. The meeting was however said to have lasted for about 45 minutes.
It was gathered from a source close to the meeting that both leaders used the occasion of the visit to discuss the state of the nation.
Kwankwaso is a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress while Atiku is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.
It was not clear why he boycotted his party’s national convention at the Eagles Square.
But the former governor has been having running battles with the party in his state and at the national level.
Atiku has declared his intention to seek the ticket of the PDP to contest the 2019 presidential election.
Though he has yet to defect, there are speculations that the former governor of Kano State is also planning to leave the APC soon.
When contacted, Media aide to Atiku, Mr. Paul Ibe, confirmed the visitation but declined to discuss details of the meeting between Atiku and Kwankwaso.
