Jonathan in Closed Door Meeting With Past Leaders In Aso Rock

President Goodluck Jonathan is expected to meet with past Nigerian heads of states and governments at the Presidential Villa tonight.

The meeting which was scheduled for 8pm, was classified as private.

At the time of this report it was however not clear if all former leaders were invited to attend the meeting. The focus of the meeting was also known.

The meeting is coming on heels of worries expressed by President Jonathan over the conduct and utterances of senior politicians which he said were encouraging terrorists and capable of jeopardising the 2015 general elections.

Former Heads of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, Muhammadu Buhari, former Vice President Alex Ekwueme and former Chief of General Staff (CGS), Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe were in town at the time of this report,s while former President Shehu Shagari was represented by his son at the All-Political Parties Summit which took place in Abuja earlier on Thursday.

If invited, other former leaders expected at the meeting will be former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, General Ibrahim Babangida and former Chairman of Interim National Government (ING), Chief Ernest Shonekan.
