The duo of former South African President, Thabo Mbeki, and former Nigerian military Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar, have held separate confidential meetings with the leading contenders in the upcoming presidential elections- the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan, who is the People’s Democratic Party candidate and Muhammadu Buhari who is the flag bearer of the leading opposition party, All Progressives Congress.
The two African leaders reportedly met with President Jonathan in the President’s official residence at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Sunday.
Both former leaders gave no comments on the objectives of the meeting and neither did they oblige any journalist with interviews after the meeting.
The duo also held another meeting behind closed doors with Buhari, at the retired General’s office along Jabi Road, Kaduna metropolis on Monday.
Again, journalists who sought information about the purpose of the meeting were left in the dark as neither the visitors nor their host, Buhari, commented on the meeting held.
