Abuja - Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday visited his successor, President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja, reports Premium Times.
Jonathan arrived the Villa at exactly 2 pm and went straight to the President’s office.
Buhari was observing his afternoon prayer at the Villa Mosque when his predecessor arrived.
The President had gone to the mosque straight from the Council chamber where he presided over a meeting of the Federal Executive Council.
He came out immediately after the prayer to meet with Jonathan.
They met behind closed-doors for about 20 minutes inside the President's office.
Addressing State House reporters later, Jonathan said he as well as Ijaw elders and traditional rulers were working to ensure peace in the Niger Delta region, reports Daily Trust.
He stressed that a united Nigeria was needed, saying there cannot be development anywhere without peace.
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.
