President Goodluck Jonathan and President-elect Muhammadu Buhari met for the second time since the March 28 presidential election, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Friday, behind closed-doors.
Addressing newsmen after the meeting, Jonathan said that they deliberated on a tour of the Villa, billed to take place soon, to acquaint Buhari with his new home.
“We will take a date when the President-elect will come and I will show him round the State House but today is not for that. Today is to continue with our conversation. We don’t need to worry him,” Jonathan said. The president said the conversation was “in the interest of the country”.
The meeting is part of arrangements between the outgoing government and the incoming administration of Buhari to ensure a smooth transition as well as the inauguration on May 29.
