KanyiDaily had reported that Jonathan arrived at the State House at about 3.00 p.m on Thursday, and went straight to Buhari’s office where they both had some private chat without discussing their agenda with newsmen.
Following the meeting, Jonathan left the country today for Maputo, capital of Mozambique, where he expected to lead the continental body’s Election Observation Mission.
Jonathan’s spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze, said in a statement on Thursday, that his principal is scheduled to lead Mozambique’s general election on October 15, 2019.
While there, he will be overseeing the deployment of the mission’s 40-member team of observers, to different parts of the country.
In a letter of invitation signed by the Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, the AU described Jonathan as a man who is deeply committed to peace and democracy on the continent. It said:
“Given Your Excellency’s vast experience and commitment in promoting democracy and peace on the continent, I would like to invite you to lead the African Union Election Observation Mission (AUEOM) to the Republic of Mozambique.”
Meanwhile, a former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron has accused Goodluck Jonathan of preventing the British force from rescuing the 276 girls that were abducted from a secondary school in Chibok, Borno State, by Boko Haram terrorists in April 2014.
According to Cameron, the British troops spotted the location of the abducted schoolgirls and offered to rescue them but Jonathan refused as he seemed to see the entire incident as cheap politics.
