While speaking after a closed-door meeting with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, at his Hilltop residence in Minna, Niger State, yesterday, former military President, General Ibrahim Babangida, has praised the governor for working towards the revival  of the  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
 
 
According to Daily Sun, Babangida said; “That is why I particularly appreciate the job the Rivers state governor is doing; to make sure politics moves the way it is practised in the civilised world.

“This is because you need a very good political party in this country and he is working towards achieving that. He applies his courage, his knowledge, contacts to make sure PDP remains very strong.”
 
IBB also thanked Wike for his commitment to good governance and disclosed that as other Nigerians, he has been keeping a tab on Wike’s good works. 
 
In his comments on the recently-concluded Anambra governorship poll, the former military president said the election was credible and that he was not surprised by its outcome “because adequate preparations were made. 
 
“It is indication that Nigerians would be able to conduct themselves well, in a very peaceful environment.” The elder statesman thanked the governor for his visit.
 
Addressing newsmen after the visit, Wike disclosed Rivers leaders were in Minna, to  consult with the former military president as a leader of the PDP and that he consults with the former leader on party issues.
 
The Rivers state governor also noted that the visit was meant to wish the former leader well, with regards to his health.
 
Wike was accompanied on the visit by a member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Ken Chikere, a former attorney general in the state, Frank Ohwor, PDP elder statesman, Prince Emma Anyanwu and a Special Adviser, Chief Glory Emeh.  
 
The meeting later went into a closed door session.
