Jonathan In Secret Meeting With Buhari

President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday evening held a secret meeting with the president-elect, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd).

The meeting was held behind closed-doors inside the Presidential Villa.

The meeting which was private, was kept away from media presence.

Checks indicated that the meeting started around 9pm, and lasted for  30 minutes.

Presidency source who pleaded anonymity said that the smooth hand over of government on May 29, topped the agenda of the meeting.

Sources close to the presidency confided in our correspondent that the bickering that is going on between the APC Transition Committee and the Presidency Transition Committee members also formed critical part of the discussions between the two leaders. It was agreed that both parties should harmonise positions first before rushing to the press for public consumption. Both leaders, it was gathered, were not happy with the seeming rancour that had ensued between the APC and the presidency over the transition programme.

The source said though it is not mandatory for Jonathan to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Buhari, but the president may likely attend.
