President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday met behind closed-doors with his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan at the President’s office at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.

Jonathan arrived the Villa at exactly 2 pm and went straight to the President’s office while Buhari was still observing his afternoon prayer at the Villa Mosque.

The president had gone to the Mosque straight from the Council chamber where he presided over a meeting of the Federal Executive Council but came out immediately after the prayer to meet with Jonathan.

The reason for the former President’s visit remained unknown but Jonathan told State House journalists after the meeting that a united Nigeria was needed.

He said he and other stakeholders in the Niger Delta were working to ensure peace in the region.

According to him, “I have always said that when there is no peace, there cannot be development anywhere. We are great not because of our oil, but because of our size and diversity.

Jonathan said at an appropriate time, he would talk about the fight against corruption in the country when the cases in court might have been resolved.

He said he was at the State House to inform Buhari about his appointment by the AU to lead the election observers to Zambia.

This is the fourth time Mr. Jonathan is visiting his successor.

He was at the Villa in August and November last year, and in June this year. Hedid not address the press on those occasions.
