Issues of national interest and international affairs were discussed by former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (retd.) and President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday at the Presidential Villa.
This was revealed by Gen. Abdusalami in an interview with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting which was held inside the President’s office.
Gen. Abdusalami further disclosed that the National Peace Committee for the 2015 General Elections which he chairs was still working behind the scene.
The former head of state however declined to reveal the specific issues he discussed with the President when reporters asked him to do so.
“I came to discuss issues of national interest and international affairs with the President. Both of them are interwoven. I have discussed with the person I came to see and I don’t think I need to discuss it in the news media,” Abubakar said.
“We (the committee members) are still working, although quietly, to make sure that there is peace in the country.
“I hope all Nigerians will give the present administration the necessary support to make sure that we overcome all these crises that are unnecessary and uncalled for,” he added.
