President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday met behind closed-doors with former Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar at the State House, Abuja.
At the end of the meeting that lasted for about 30 minutes, Abdulsalami called for peaceful resolution of all crises bedeviling the nation.
Abdulsalami, who is the Chairman of the National Peace Committee, said the committee was working quietly to ensure peace in the country.
On the impact of the peace committee, Abdulsalami said: “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.”
“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.”
Abdulsalami, who said he was in the Villa to discuss national and international issues with the President, ignored questions on corruption, militancy and insurgency.
On his reaction to the Niger Delta militancy, Boko Haram, and corruption, he said: “I have discussed with the President whom I came to see and I don’t think I need to discuss that with the media. I talk to the people I need to talk to.”
