President Buhari Meets With Goodluck Jonathan

President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), was in a meeting today, with ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan and former vice president, Namadi Sambo.

Personal Assistant to the President, on Digital and New Media, Bashir Ahmad, disclosed the meetings on his Twitter page.

According to updates from Ahmad, the president met with Jonathan and Sambo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

While Buhari met Sambo around 02.44 pm, Jonathan and the president met about 05.44 pm.

Earlier, the decision by Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, to lead a delegation of fellow governors and leading members of the All Progressives Congress from across Nigeria, to felicitate with former President Goodluck Jonathan on his 63rd birthday had elicited reactions from across the country’s political space.

It was an unprecedented trip by leading lights of the former opposition, now ruling party, who ironically truncated Jonathan’s quest to return to Aso Rock in 2015.

Governors on Buni’s APC entourage include: Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi State), David Umahi (Ebonyi State), Abubakar Badaru (Jigawa State) and former President of the Senate, Ken Nnamani.

Buni’s media adviser, Mamman Mohammed, while responding to inquiries about the visit, said, “His Excellency, the Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, and some of his colleagues in the APC were at the residence of former President Goodluck Jonathan to congratulate him on his 63rd birthday, nothing more.”
