The ongoing clampdown on corrupt officials in the Goodluck Jonathan-led administration is yielding more drama than anticipated. Former president Goodluck Jonathan held a closed door meeing with President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday night over fears of being singled out for corrupt practices in Nigeria. The meeting reportedly held between 9pm and 10pm before both parties parted ways. According to SaharaReporters, their sources have stated that it was learnt that former President Jonathan was at the Presidential Villa to check Mr. Buhari’s temperament regarding the growing probe of the different sectors of the former president’s administration.
One source stated that President Buhari and Mr. Jonathan parted on an “amicable note,” with both men chatting and laughing.

Less than 24 hours after the meeting, former President Olusegun Obasanio also requested to meet with President Buhari. One source revealed that, at the meeting with President Buhari, Mr. Obasanjo urged the new president to act boldly and courageously on corruption.

According to the source, Mr. Obasanjo specifically told the president to be open to sending former President Jonathan to prison on account of his involvement in corrupt activities.
Mr. Obasanjo reportedly listed fraudulent selling of Nigeria’s crude oil and the arms import scams as two areas he would be able to assist Mr. Buhari to nail former President Jonathan.
It should be noted the Buhari and Obasanjo are yet to offer an official press statement on the details of their meeting as the agenda were strictly kept discreet.
