Buhari, Jonathan meet in Aso Rock

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday met with his predecessor behind closed-door.

Mr Buhari received former president Goodluck Jonathan at the presidential villa at noon with the outcome of the meeting undisclosed.

The visit might not be unconnected to the former president’s work as Special Envoy of the Economic Community of West African States where he is leading mediation talks even as Mali remains under military rule following the August 2020 coup that ousted President Ibrahim Keita.
