A former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar (retd.), yesterday emerged from a closed-door session with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja with a plea to Nigerians to give the current administration the necessary support to succeed.
The former military ruler, who made the plea in a chat with State House correspondents after the meeting, said he was at the Presidential Villa to discuss national and global issues with the president.
He did not give details.

“I came to discuss issues of national interest and international affairs with the president. Both of them are interwoven. I have discussed with the person I came to see and I don’t think I need to discuss it in the news media”, he said.
Mr. Abubakar, who chaired the National Peace Committee for the 2015 General Elections, said the committee was still working, though silently, to ensure peace in the country.
The elder statesman also reiterated his stand on the Niger Delta crisis, saying it was unnecessary and uncalled for.
