Jonathan schedules tour of Aso Rock for Buhari

President Goodluck Jonathan has proposed a tour of the presidential villa for President-elect Muhammadu Buhari.

The two leaders met Friday behind closed-doors. It was their second meeting since March 28 elections, won by Mr. Buhari.

Mr. Jonathan will hand over power to Mr. Buhari on May 29.

Speaking after the meeting, President Jonathan told journalists who sought to know what they discussed that a date would be scheduled to take Mr. Buhari on a familiarisation tour of the Aso Rock presidential villa.

“We will take a date when the president will come and I will show him round the state house but today is not for that. Today is to continue with our conversation. We don’t need to worry the President,” he said.

Asked how fruitful their conversion was, the president said “You can see that we are smiling, it was a fruitful one”.

He said the discussions were “in the interest of the country”.

Asked to comment on the meeting, Mr. Buhari said “The president had said it all”.

The meeting is in continuation of ongoing arrangements between the outgoing government and the incoming government for a smooth transition as well as the inauguration.

Mr. Buhari arrived the villa at about 3p.m. Friday.

Two transition committees set up by both the president and Mr. Buhari had also met twice as part of arrangements for a smooth handover of power on May 28.
