President Goodluck Jonathan has revealed that his meeting with the President-elect, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari, at the Aso Rock Villa , Friday was to further their conversation on the well being of the country.

The meeting, which lasted nearly 30 minutes, was held behind closed doors.

It was Buhari’s second visit to Jonathan since the declaration of the presidential election results on March 31 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Jonathan, who had paid a private visit to the President-elect after he was declared the winner of the election, told State House correspondents that a date would be picked on which to show Buhari “round the State House“. “

We will pick a date when the President-elect will come and I will show him round the State House.But today is not for that; today we are continuing with our conversation. So, you don’t need to worry the President-elect, you don’t need to also worry the President.

“But you see that we are smiling. So, it was a fruitful one (conversation) in the interest of the country.”

When asked about the meeting, Buhari simply said he concurred with what Jonathan had told reporters.

“The President said it all,“ the President-elect declared.

Buhari was accompanied on the visit by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun, and a former Chief of Army Staff, General Abdulrahman Dambazau.
