President Jonathan in Closed Door meeting with TY Danjuma

President Goodluck Jonathan at a Presidential rally

A former Defence Minister, Theophilus Danjuma, visited Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday.

Messrs Jonathan and Danjuma held a 15-minute closed-door meeting at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Mr. Danjuma, who spoke with journalists after the meeting, said the details of the meeting were confidential but, however, added that he had not come to endorse the President ahead of the March 28 presidential election.

“I don’t canvass. I am not in any of the political parties. The President is Nigeria’s President,” said Mr. Danjuma.

He said having returned from a trip abroad, he needed to see President Jonathan about occurrences in the country.

“Don’t speculate. I came to visit the President and find out how things are going. I have been abroad. I just came back,” he said.

Mr. Danjuma had drawn the ire of former militants in Niger-Delta because he asked the President to sanction the militants for threatening to go to war if President Jonathan, a Niger-Deltan, loses the election.

The ex-militants declared him a persona non grata in the south-south region saying Mr. Danjuma was feeding fat on the wealth derived from the Niger-Delta’s oil.

    How many closed door meetings can you have Mr President? You have met with practically everyone possible and have promised each one of them something. This is a good recipe for more corruption and impunity for when the time comes, you will find out you can not meet these promises for there is an antecedent already. Besides, if you have performed in the last 6 years running around from pillar to post will not be an issue now, because your work and achievements will speak for you. Running all over the place, distributing money, from palaces to churches to mosques and behind closed doors does not portray you in good light at all and the citizens are watching, and this time they can not be hoodwinked. When the time for a divorce comes it means people have made up their mind to let go.
