President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday met with former Head of State and Chairman, National Peace Committee and former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, at the Presidential Villa.

Although the agenda of the meeting was unknown, Abubakar said his committee was working quietly behind the scene to ensure amicable resolution of crises in the country.

He stressed the need for the Buhari administration with the assistance of all Nigerians to resolve the various crises in the country.

Abubakar, who said he was in the Villa to discuss some undisclosed issues with the president, stressed the need for political parties to work together.

Asked about the impact of the peace committee, Abubakar said: “We are still working, although quietly. We are working to make sure that there is peace in the country and all the political parties work amicably because each one has got a role to play.

“So, I hope the current administration through the assistance of all Nigerians will give a helping hand to make that these crises that are unnecessary and uncalled for, we overcome them.”
