What I Discussed With Buhari Behind Closed-Doors – Abdulsalami Abubakar

A former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar

Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Abubakar said this in an interview with State House
correspondents at the end of the meeting which was held
inside the President’s office.
The former military ruler however refused to disclose the

reporters asked him to do so.
“I came to discuss issues of national interest and
international affairs with the President. Both of them are

Abubakar said.
Reacting to a claim that he had been silent on national

He said the National Peace Committee for the 2015
General Elections which he chairs was still working behind
the scene.
He then urged all Nigerians to support the present
administration in its efforts aimed at resolving the crisis
facing the nation
“We (the committee members) are still working, although

“I hope all Nigerians will give the present administration the
necessary support to make sure that we overcome all
these crisis that are unnecessary and uncalled for,” he
