Former president Goodluck Jonathan has downplayed the importance of his latest visit to President Muhammadu Buhari.
On Wednesday, Jonathan visited Buhari at the presidential villa, drawing the curiosity of journalists on the purpose of the meeting.
But speaking with state house correspondents before exiting the villa, Jonathan said he had met the president many times without the notice of journalists, because such meetings were in the night.
He added that as a former president, he had become a property of the state and visits to the president should be expected.
“You asked why I came to see the president today; one key thing is that having been a head of government, a former president, you become a state property,” he said.
