Most times I come in the night to visit the president - Goodluck Jonathan

President Buhari this afternoon received former President Goodluck Jonathan at the state house Abuja.

Speaking with state house correspondents after their closed door meeting which lasted for 20 minutes, the former president said he had met the president many times without the notice of journalists, because such meetings were in the night.

He added that as a former president, he had become a property of the state and visits to the president should be expected.

“You asked why I came to see the president today; one key thing is that having been a head of government, a former president, you become a state property,” he said.

“That’s the privilege you have but every privilege has its corresponding responsibility, and once you become a state property, most of your international engagements that have to do with public addresses and some international assignments, they become national assignments; you brief the President.

“Even when I was here, the former presidents used to do that and see me. I have been coming; most times I come in the night; that’s why you don’t see me.
