Although the presidential aide was silent on the issues discussed at the meeting, it may not be unconnected with the worsening insecurity in the country and other national issues.

Abubakar ruled Nigeria from June 9, 1998, to May 29, 1999.

He supervised Nigeria’s return to democratic rule and handed over power to ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo who won the country’s presidential election held in December 1998.
