President Muhammadu Buhari, on August 6, 2015, held a closed door meeting with his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa.
What President told Jonathan during secret meeting
However, a source said that during the meeting, Buhari presented Jonathan with evidence of the corruption carried out during his regime.
Jonathan visited Buhari at night and details of the meeting were not disclosed as no third party was allowed to partake.
However, a source told New Telegraph that during the meeting, Buhari presented Jonathan with evidence of the corruption carried out during his regime.
The source reportedly said:
“The president showed Dr. Jonathan some discoveries made on several infractions by officials of his (Jonathan) administration. He justified why his administration must recover looted funds and prosecute the offenders. It was a frank talk between the two leaders.”
“President Buhari availed Dr. Jonathan of reports of various discreet probes on oil deals, diversion of funds and unwholesome arms deals. From the reports, there is overwhelming evidence of infractions which the former president could not dispute.”
“From the evidence so far, it is either the former president lacks the capacity to govern or abdicated his responsibilities.”
The secret meeting between the two leaders gave rise to speculation that Jonathan had gone to plead with Buhari not to probe his administration.
The President has however said that he would not be cowed into stopping the war against corruption.
