Obasanjo, Jonathan meet over nation's security

Published by Daily Trust on Thu, 28 Aug 2014


President Goodluck Jonathan and former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo met in the early hours of Wednesday, in Abuja, to discuss nation's security matters. The visit was on the invitation of President Jonathan at the Villa.This was coming barely two days, after the former President commended efforts of the Federal and Lagos state governments respectively on the efforts made to check the spread of Ebola virus.Also, Obasanjo at the weekend spoke his mind on the state of economy, as he drew similarities between the way the present state of the economy is going and the way it was during the regime of General Sani Abacha, saying the current situation has almost wiped out the middle class.But, Obasanjo while confirming to newsmen the meeting with Jonathan shortly after arriving from Abuja in Abeokuta today, said it was purely on security matters."Yes, I can confirm that I met with Mr. President on his invitation.In fact, he had wanted to come down to Abeokuta, but as a sign of respect to the Office of the President, I had to go. We had discussion on the country's security issues and that is all."Obasanjo, who appreciated the invitation of Mr. President said he would continue to make his himself available on national issues in the interest of peace and progress of the country.On the Eggon/Fulani crisis in Nassarawa state, Obasanjo called on the government of Benue and Nassarawa to ensure that peace is restored to the warring communities. He said, the two; Eggon (who are farmers) and the Fulani who are herders must understand themselves over the differences."There is no way, such will not happen, but the two state governments should come up with lasting solutions. The farmers would want their crops to be protected, while the cattle men will also want their cattles to feed. So, the government should fashion out peaceful means to end the crisis," Obasanjo disclosed.
