Nigerian Twitter Has A Problem With Oby Ezekwesili' Secret Meeting With IBB In Minna 3

Nigerian Twitter users can’t seem to wrap their head around the fact the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) presidential candidate, Oby Ezekwesili, had a meeting with Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB) who ruled Nigeria between 1985 to 1993.

According to TheCable reports, the meeting took place on Sunday, November 4, 2018 in Minna and that it was a “secret meeting” held behind closed doors.

Photos from that meeting have been trending on social media, with Nigerian wondering what Ezekwesili, who has often vowed to dislodge and dismantle the old political order, is doing with someone like IBB, a self-confessed evil genius, and a member of that old political guard she vowed to dismantle.

In her response, Dr Ezekwesili tweeted that she told IBB that her mission is to get Nigeria off the clutches of that ‘old order’.
