The United Kingdom has cleared the air on reports suggesting that President Muhammadu Buhari was in London to meet with his predecessor for a secret meeting to end the crisis in the Niger Delta.
A statement by the British Government signed by the Press Officer in the British High Commission in Abuja, Mr. Joe Abuku said there was no truth whatsoever in the several reports claiming that Buhari was attending the meeting with former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, in London under the guise of seeking medical attention.
“Reports suggesting that the British Government has set up a meeting with President Buhari, former President, Jonathan, and representatives of Niger Delta groups to discuss a solution to recent violence in the Niger Delta region are incorrect.
“We are aware that President Buhari is currently in London seeking medical attention. We are not aware of any meetings on the Niger Delta while he is there,” the statement read.
