President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday met behind closed doors with the former Borno State Governor, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff at the Presidential Villa, Abuja
Their meeting may not be unconnected with the ceasefire agreement reached with the extremist Boko Haram sect. Abusidiqu had reported in the wake of the ceasefire announcement by the military how the President and Sheriff influenced the ceasefire deal.
Sheriff, who has been fingered as one of the sponsors of the violent Islamic sect, Boko Haram, declined to speak with State House correspondents at the end of the over one hour meeting.
Dressed in a cream coloured ‘Agbada’ Sheriff said to journalists: “No time today. I’m going to see the Chief of Staff.”
