Dickson, who did not talk to journalists after the meeting, which lasted about one hour, according to a source, drove off immediately the meeting ended.

The source, who was privy to the meeting, but declined to be named, explained that the 60-minute meeting took place at the ex-Nigerian leader’s Hilltop Mansion in Minna, the country home of the former military ruler.

Dickson was said to have met alone with Babangida in his private study, away from the prying eyes of aides of both politicians.

“The governor, after an hour, came out of the meeting and did not disclose the purpose of the visit. He got into his car and zoomed off,” he said.
