Minna — The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, yesterday, led the National Working Committee (NWC) on a visit to former military president, retired General Ibrahim Babangida, in Minna.

The delegation was also at the residence of a former member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the party and late governor of Niger State, Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdullahi Kure, where they condoled with his widow, Senator Zainab Kure.

The delegation was said to have arrived at Minna airport via a chartered flight and driven in a motorcade to the uphill residence of the former leader.
