Jonathan, Buhari Meet Again to Further Handover Conversation



President Goodluck Jonathan and the President-elect, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari, met again on Friday at the Aso Rock Villa to further their conversation on the well being of the country.

Buhari met with the president behind closed doors for nearly 30 minutes.

Rising from the meeting, President Jonathan told State House correspondents that a date would be picked on which to show Buhari “round the State House“.

“We will pick a date when the President-elect will come and I will show him round the State House. “But today is not for that; today we are continuing with our conversation. So, you don’t need to worry the President-elect, you don’t need to also worry the President. But you see that we are smiling. So, it was a fruitful one (conversation) in the interest of the country.“

The president did not disclose the content of the discussion but said the discussion was fruitful and in the interest of the country.

The meeting came on the sidelines of the ongoing meeting between representatives of the president and those of Buhari over handover formalities.

It was Buhari’s second visit to Jonathan since the declaration of the presidential election results on March 31 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Jonathan had paid a private visit to the President-elect after he was declared the winner of the election.

When Buhari was asked to say what the meeting was about, he simply said he agreed with what Jonathan had told reporters.

“The President said it all,“ the President-elect declared.

Buhari was accompanied on the visit by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun, and a former Chief of Army Staff, General Abdulrahman Dambazau.
