I have a duty to intervene in FG/militants face-off –Jonathan



Former President Goodluck Jonathan, Wednesday, said it was his responsibility and that of traditional rulers from the Niger Delta to mediate in the face-off between militants in the region and the Federal Government.
Jonathan stated while fielding questions from State House correspondents after a brief close door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at presidential villa, Abuja.
The former president who declined answering questions on the current anti-corruption war of the Buhari administration, said it would be inappropriate for him to comment on it since most of the cases are in court.
He however disclosed that his meeting with President Buhari afforded him the opportunity of briefing him about his recent international engagements and future ones.
