Again, Buhari Meets Obasanjo, Anglican Bishops Inside Aso Rock
President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday granted separate audiences to former President Olusegun Obasanjo and Anglican bishops inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Buhari first met Obasanjo, who was decked in white agbada, inside the President’s office at about 12.30pm.
He was accompanied on the visit by one of his close allies, Otunba Johnson Fasawe.
The meeting between the two leaders lasted about an hour.
Obasanjo did not speak with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting.
But a source told our correspondent that the meeting centred on the outcome of Obasanjo’s recent international engagements.
Specifically, the source said the former President used the opportunity of the meeting to formally brief Buhari on the report of the Eminent Persons Group he presented to the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States Summit of Heads of States which ended in Papua, New Guinea on Wednesday.
Buhari later met with some Anglican bishops who urged him to end the menace of the herdsmen and pipeline vandalism in the country.
Nicholas Okoh, primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), led? the clerics.
“We told him (Buhari) many things but part of it is that we are all looking for solution to issues of the herdsmen, issue of vandalism on security in one way or the other,” Okoh said.
“This is because the people are asking us and we want to have explanation for the people whom we lead.”
Okoh said Buhari’s response were satisfactory and “very favourable”.
?”He gave us detailed explanations of what he is doing to ensure that these things are solved. So, we have hope, we have message for our people,” he said.
