Former Military President Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida has thrown his weight behind the Governorship candidate of the Kaduna Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Isa Mohammed Ashiru.
IBB, as he is popularly called, described Ashiru as a well-grounded politician and leader.
Babangida made this known when Ashiru and his running mate, Sunday Marshall Katung paid him a visit in his Minna, Niger state, hilltop residence.
He said: “You are a bright leader and from my observation, your team is also bright. Every leader needs a strong, bright team in order to succeed. And I assure you of my blessings.”
Earlier, the governorship candidate told the former President that they were at his residence to seek his fatherly advice and prayers as he goes into the electioneering campaigns.
