Buhari Meets Jonathan Behind Closed Doors At Aso Villa



President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday evening met with former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

Naija News reports that the duo met behind closed doors inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja, after the meeting of the weekly Federal Executive Council.

Jonathan, who arrived for the meeting at about 4pm, did not speak with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting.

As of the time of filing this report, the Presidency also did not disclose the agenda of the meeting.

In recent times, the media has been awash with reports that the former president is plotting to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the All Progressives Congress, APC.

According to the reports, Jonathan is planning on contesting the 2023 presidential election.

Recall that the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike had warned Jonathan that the APC has no good intention for him.

He added that a critical analysis of the situation shows the APC doesn’t like the former President but only want to ruin his hard-earned reputation.

Wike warned Jonathan not to be deceived by the lure of getting the ruling party’s 2023 presidential ticket, observing that it is all a ploy to destroy his name.

The Rivers State Governor made his views known in an interview with BBC News Pidgin.

Wike cautioned Jonathan not to fall for the antics of the ruling party, reminding him of the harsh and wicked things they said about him in the build-up to the 2015 presidential election.

“I will tell him not to go anywhere. ‘This people don’t like you. You should know them very well that they don’t like you. What have they not said about you? Has all the things they said about you changed?’

“APC are only intent on bringing in PDP people who has name, and destroy them so that they will not have anywhere to go again. That’s what APC is doing,” Wike said
