President Muhammadu Buhari and former military head of state, Abdulsalami Abubakar, met on Thursday behind closed doors at the presidential villa, Abuja.
After the meeting, Mr. Abubakar, who is also chairman of the National Peace Committee, told journalists that the committee was working quietly to ensure that peace was restored in the country.
Mr Abubakar did not say what he discussed with the president.
He however expressed the hope that all crises facing the country would be resolved by the Buhari-led administration.
“We are still working, although quietly. We are working to make sure that there is peace in the country and all the political parties work amicably because each one has got a role to play,” Mr. Abubakar said.
“So, I hope the current administration through the assistance of all Nigerians will give a helping hand to make sure that these crises that are unnecessary and uncalled for, we overcome them,” he said.
Asked to comment on the the government’s handling of the Niger Delta Avengers and Boko Haram crises, Mr. Abubakar said, “I have discussed with the president whom I came to see and I don’t think I need to disclose to the media”.
