President Buhari receives Goodluck Jonathan at Presidential Villa
President Muhammadu Buhari is currently meeting with former President Goodluck Jonathan at the State House, Abuja.
NAN, however, gathered that Jonathan would update Buhari on his recent international assignment in Mali.
Jonathan headed the mediation team of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) on Mali’s lingering political crisis.
NAN also reports that Jonathan may use the opportunity to condole with the president over the death of his friend, Ismaila Isa Funtua, who died of cardiac arrest on Monday, July 20.
During the meeting, Jonathan appreciated Buhari for naming a railway complex after him.
“Let me use this opportunity to commend Mr. President publicly. It’s a good gesture. I appreciate it, I thank Mr President and the Minister of Transportation,” Jonathan said.
In his remarks, President Buhari said: "Today I received a comprehensive report from the ECOWAS Special Envoy to Mali, former President Goodluck Jonathan, on the political situation in the country. Regarding the way forward, we will ask the President of Niger, who is the Chairman of ECOWAS, to brief us as a group."
