President Muhammadu Buhari is currently meeting with former Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan at the State House in Abuja.

Jonathan arrived at the forecourt of Aso Rock around 2:58pm before proceeding to the President’s office for the meeting.

This is Jonathan’s first visit to Buhari during the second term of his successor.

Under Buhari’s first term, Jonathan paid two private visits to Nigeria’s seat of power.

This is the first public appearance of the former president after the reports of the allegation against him by David Cameron, former British prime minister, went viral.

Cameron had said Jonathan prevented UK troops from rescuing some of the 276 schoolgirls Boko Haram abducted from Chibok, Borno state but the Nigerian leader denied this, saying Cameron was against him because he signed the anti-same sex marriage bill into law.

It is unclear what the meeting between Jonathan and Buhari is all about.
