Former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar yesterday visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Though the purpose of the visit was not clear at the time of this report, the former head of state is believed to have come to express solidarity with Buhari over the recent scathing criticisms and allegations of non performance.
When approached by State House correspondents, the former head of state declined comments.
General Abdulsalami, who is the chairman of National Peace Committee is about the only former military head of state that has not spoken publicly against Buhari and his style of governance.
Only recently, former President Olusegun Obasanjo wrote a lengthy letter to Buhari accusing him of nepotism and non performance in government. Obasanjo also asked him to forget a re-election come 2019.
Also, about a forthnight ago, former Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida jumped on the bandwagon with a letter to Buhari expressing similar sentiments.
Babangida’s letter was followed with a visit to the President by a delegation of Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria led by its President and Archbishop of Jos, Most Rev. Ignatius Ayau Kaigama. The clerics told President Buhari that his administration had failed to tackle poverty, hunger, insecurity, violence, fear and unemployment.
