“I miss all of you, I wish you all Barka de Sallah. I am better now and I will be back in few days’ time,” he said.
Former Head of State General Abdulsalami Abubakar was at the governor’s lodge to pay Sallah homage, the way he does annually, with IBB when the later called his phone to inform Nigerians he was ready to return home after receiving intensive care in Germany.
Several groups have been to Germany to visit the ailing former president, including a delegation sent last week by Governor Aliyu.
