Buhari Meets TY Danjuma At Aso Rock


Buhari Meets TY Danjuma At Aso RockPresident Muhammadu Buhari has on Wednesday, October 28 met with a former Minister of Defence, Gen. Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma (retd.).

The meeting held behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, took place after the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) presided over by the President.

The agenda of the meeting between the two leaders was however not made public as Danjuma also did not speak with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting.

The Presidency was yet to release a statement on the meeting as of the time of filing this report.

NAN reports that the meeting may not be unconnected with Buhari’s consultations with major leaders in the country, aimed at finding lasting solutions to the nation security and socio-economic challenges.

Danjuma was Buhari’s senior in the army and both served under the Murtala-Obasanjo administration between 1975 and 1979.

Buhari initially served as governor North Eastern state and later became commissioner for petroleum.

The meeting however held about two days after the National Christian Elders Forum which Danjuma and other statesmen belong to, demanded that Nigeria be re-negotiated.

NCEF also claimed that the #EndSARS protests in parts of the country were mismanaged by the present regime because the Army was released against unarmed protesters in the country.

The group’s position was contained in a resolution made available to journalists on Sunday after its emergency meeting held last Thursday.
