Former President Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday, visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, for the second time since he left office on May 29.
The two leaders met behind closed doors at the New Banquet Hall of the State House for about ten minutes, soon after which Jonathan left the Villa.
The details of Jonathan’s meeting with Buhari was not disclosed. However, following enquiries made to the presidency on the agenda of the meeting, presidential spokesperson, Mr. Femi Adesina told Vanguard on phone: “He has the right to visit the villa anytime as a former president,” Adesina said.
It is believed that Jonathan visited President Buhari to brief him on the outcome of the Tanzania election in which he played a role as the leader of Commonwealth Election Observer Group to observe the conduct of the election. However, some say the former president came to seek an understanding with the present government to halt the criticism against his government.
