President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday met with former Head of State, Gen. Abdusalami Abubakar (retd.) behind closed door.

Abubakar, who arrived at the Presidential Villa, Abuja at about 12.35pm, said he discussed issues of national interest and international affairs with Buhari.

While fielding questions from State House correspondents at the end of the meeting, the former military ruler who refused to reveal details of the issues discussed, said:


“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.”

On the National Peace Committee for the 2015 General Elections which he chairs, Abubakar said he was still working behind the scene.

“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 crisis that are unnecessary and uncalled for,” he added.
