Preparations were on top gear on Thursday evening for President Goodluck Jonathan to meet with some former leaders in the country.
The meeting which was scheduled for the Presidential Villa, Abuja, was slated to start by 8pm.
The purpose of the meeting and all those invited for the parley classified as “private” were not known at the time of filing this report.
Journalists are always not allowed to cover the President’s private meetings.
Most times, such meetings are held inside the President’s official residence if they are holding in the night or his office if holding in the afternoon.
It was not clear whether all former leaders were invited to the meeting with Jonathan.
A source said issues bordering on security challenges in parts of the country and the 2015 general elections could form parts of discussion at the private meeting.
Jonathan had on Wednesday while swearing in some government officials expressed disappointment at some unnamed politicians who he accused of making terrible statements capable of portraying them as bad politicians.
He had also on Thursday at a summit of all political parties claimed that there are some anti-democratic forces in the country working towards truncating the 2015 general elections.
