The purpose was not stated, but we are aware that Babangida returned to Nigeria on 1 November after spending close to two months in Germany for medicare.

But the political dimension of the visit was not lost as Senator Ahmadu Ali, a former army colonel and Chairman of the Jonathan-Sambo re-election campaign was in the entourage.

Was the visit a charm offensive, to get the amiable general, called Maradona behind the campaign?
