Reports have emerged that former president Goodluck Jonathan, met secretly with President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday night.
SaharaReporters claimed that the proposed corruption probe of the Jonathan administration by the Buhari government was the topic of their discussion.
A source close to the polity squealed that Jonathan was at the Presidential Villa to check Buhari’s body language as regards the rumoured probe.
However, the meeting, which was said to have lasted for one hour, (9-10p.m) saw both men chatting and laughing, even as the outcome was reportedly hidden from the preying eye and minds of the media.
Interestingly, less than 24 hours after the meeting, former President Olusegun Obasanio reportedly requested to meet Buhari. Obasanjo met with Buhari on Friday and was said to have told the new president to act boldly and courageously on corruption.
The report also stated that Obasanjo offered to help Buhari with the Jonathan government’s probe, listing fraudulent selling of Nigeria’s crude oil and the arms import scams as two areas he would be willing to assist the Buhari government with the probe.
