Buhari, Abdulsalami in closed-door meeting
President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday met behind closed-doors with former Head of State, retired General Abdusalami Abubakar at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The meeting, which was described as strictly private, took place at the president’s office and lasted 25 minutes.
The former head of state arrived the Presidential Villa at 3.30pm and left at 3.55pm without speaking to journalists.
Abdusalami headed the National Peace Committee for the 2015 General Elections.
The committee had, twice before the 2015 presidential elections, been instrumental to the peace accord signed by former President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party and Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The committee had on August 11 met with Buhari and said it was concerned about the process of the anti-corruption war of his administration.
A member of the committee, Bishop of Sokoto Diocese Hassan Kukah, had told State House correspondents shortly after that meeting that the position of the committee was that Nigeria was no longer in a military regime.
