LEAKED! Buhari, Jonathan in closed door meeting

Buhari, Jonathan in closed-door meeting

President Muhammadu Buhari and former President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday met behind closed-doors inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting which was held inside the new Banquet Hall, built by the Jonathan administration, lasted less than 10 minutes.

Jonathan, decked in a black pair of trousers and black shirt with his trademark black hat, was driven into the premises in a black Range Rover.

No aide joined the two leaders in the closed-door session.

At the end of the meeting, Buhari saw Jonathan off to his waiting car parked in front of the venue.

After shaking hands, the President waited patiently for the former President’s car to take off and waved to him before he returned to his office with his retinue of aides.

The President’s office is located beside the Banquet Hall, with a distance of less than 50 metres between the two buildings.

None of them spoke with journalists at the end of the meeting which they described as private.

Photojournalists were also not allowed to take pictures of the two leaders except for those who managed to capture them from a safe distance.
