The closed-door meeting lasted for hours in what may be seen as the “old order” paying attention to the presidential candidate who was a minister of education under former president Olusegun Obasanjo between 2006 to 2007.

A spokesperson for her campaign confirmed the meeting to TheCable but did not full information.

“The discussion was about the future of Nigeria and the 2019 elections,” the official said, refusing to confirm if Ezekwesili sought or got Babangida’s endorsement.
