President Muhammadu Buhari met with his predecessor, former President Goodluck Jonathan, on Thursday evening at his official residence at Aso Rock, Abuja, reports have said.
The closed meeting door reportedly took place at 9 pm on Thursday, barely 24 hours after Jonathan made an unexpected return from Côte d’Ivoire where he went on holiday.
The meeting is believed to be about the renewed violence in the Niger Delta being perpetrated by the Niger Delta Avengers.
“The two leaders met. The meeting was a private one. I believe it has to do with the militants’ attacks in the Niger Delta,” The Guardian quoted a source to have said.
“The former President must have offered useful suggestions and assistance on the way out.”
