Details of Tinubu’s meeting with Jonathan revealed


Former President Goodluck Jonathan has disclosed the agenda of his meeting with President Bola Tinubu.

The two men met inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Tuesday.

Speaking with newsmen afterwards, Jonathan said he met with Tinubu to brief him about the planned constitutional referendum in Mali.

Jonathan is a special envoy of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and is leading the mediation mission in Mali.

The West African country will conduct a referendum on a new constitution on June 18. It will be a precursor to the long-awaited elections scheduled for February 2024.

“I came to brief the president on the activities of some continental and subcontinental bodies. You know, I am the ECOWAS mediator for Mali and the chairman of the West African Elders Forum.

“So, there are certain issues bordering on the continent and the sub-region that I discuss with various presidents,” Jonathan said.
