Former military Head of State, retired Army General Abdulsalami Abubakar, has held a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.
General Abubakar arrived at the Presidential Villa at about 12:33pm local time and went straight into the President’s office for a meeting that lasted for about an hour.
After the meeting, the former Head of State told reporters that he was at the Presidential Villa to discuss issues of national interest and international affairs.
When asked about his comments on the issues concerning the Niger Delta and the fight against terrorism, the former military leader said that he did not come to talk to the press and that the government in power was doing its best in handling of the situations.
The former military leader midwifed the peace talks that led to the peaceful hand over from the Jonathan administration to Muhammadu Buhari.
