This photo of Atiku kneeling before IBB has got People Talking 



Former vice-president Atiku Abubakar paid a visit to former Head of State Ibrahim Babangida in his home in Minna, Niger State.

Atiku had reportedly gone to seek for Babangida’s endorsement for his candidacy for president in 2019.

According to Premium Times, Babangida “had a very useful political discussion” with the former vice president, his spokesperson Kassim Afegbuan saying:

They had a very useful political discussion. IBB also has a good relationship with Atiku.

A photo showing the former vice-president squatting to address Babangida has since circulated on social media.

While some have termed it a show of respect due to a Northern elder, others have described it as a show of desperation to get elected.

      Showing any respect for someone who is responsible for a lot of today’s problems means he wants to continue in the same vein. After All this guy was also responsible for Abacha

    Atiku exposed and confirmed his intention, not surprising though. They are all the same who want to continue the same corruption. Respect Is earned not bcos you are old. IBB era is where the corrupt government started from and it deteriorated from there. Atiku will continue the same evil, corrupt rule as his mentor and predecessors.
    Bringing back old rulers isrecipe for destruction. These people won’t stop until they see Nigeria in complete shambles while they sit on stolen funds for them and their families. My prayer going into 2018, God will rule Nigeria with iron hand, put an end to the lives and power of evil, negative rulers. THen raise up true, leaders who will bring Nigeria to a better country, Nigerians MUST turn from their evil ways. Enough is enough.
    You go around as the most religious(christians, Muslims and others)book smart people yet the most wicked. The time for change has come.

    Atiku wasn’t kneeing down ? for IBB as people think, he’s just trying to bend down low to the sickle leg pain that can not allow IBB to exchange greeting while standing.
    Moreover it’s not a tradition for Hausa people to bow to men they respect.
    Atiku is as rich, influential and political as anyone around Nigeria.
    So pls Nigerians must understand that at this time.
    Atiku is not bowing ? or kneeling to anyone not even OBJ.
    Atiku doesn’t need to do that to anyone to get the votes of Nigerians.

    Desperado Atiku Abubakar begging Tyrant Ibrahim Babangida to help crown him president of Nigeria. Dear desperado Atiku Abubaka. You have already Plattoed politically by becoming the Vice President under the Olusegun Obasanjo administration. What the hell are you still looking for in that office? Stop wasting your time. You will never be elected President of the Federal republic of Nigeria. You’re part of what’s wrong with Nigeria.. Get that through your despirado mind and thick skull. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.
