Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, met with the immediate past president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, at the weekend in the Presidential Villa. The last time men were seen at the Presidential Villa in Abuja was on May 29, 2015 – the day on which Jonathan made history as the first elected Nigerian president to hand over to a successor from an opposition political party. Jonathan, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had conceded victory to Buhari, of the All Progressives Congress (APC) before the latter’s official announcement as winner of the March 28 presidential ballot.

A Channels Television report quoted a source as disclosing that the meeting between both leaders held in the night and lasted for about one hour.

“It was not exactly clear what both men discussed, but there were strong indications that the leaders tried to examine the ongoing corruption investigation of the former president’s cabinet,” the report said.

The TV station said it gathered that after the meeting, both men parted chatting and laughing.

The meeting held hours after a similar one at the same venue by Buhari and another former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.

Obasanjo’s visit to the Villa was the first since Buhari was elected and inaugurated as the President.
