Governor Muhammad Yahaya of Gombe State has visited the former Military Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar, at his uphill residence in Minna, Niger State.
The governor visited Abdulsalami at his residence on Saturday afternoon, weeks after returning from a foreign medical trip.
Speaking with reporters, Yahaya said he was in Minna to visit Abdulsalami over his recent battle with illness and to wish him good health and long life.
Naija News recalls that Abdulsalami was flown out of the country in May to Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, for medical attention and was later admitted to a Specialist hospital in London.
The former military leader was taken abroad after falling ill and reportedly suffering a stroke in a part of his body.
Abubakar and his wife, Justice Fati Lami Abubakar returned to the country on August 14, after spending three months abroad.
During his stay in London, Abubakar could not celebrate his 80th birthday which friends and relations had planned for him.
He was also unable to attend the signing of the Peace Accord by Governorship candidates for the Ekiti and Osun gubernatorial elections.
