President Muhmmadu Buhari had a closed-door meeting with President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, late Sunday night at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting was made public at about 11:36pm on Sunday by Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, on his Twitter handle.
“President @MBuhari receives Ghanian President H.E. @NAkufoAddo tonight in his official residence at the State House, Abuja,” the tweet said.
Ahmad, who did not elaborate on purpose of the meeting, however posted a picture of both presidents on a walk.
Although tips on why President Buhari hosted his counterpart were not yet out as at the time of filing this report, there were indications from Presidency sources that it might be in relation to the recent diplomatic row between Nigeria and Ghana.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) had recently attended an Extraordinary session of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in Ghana, after which he addressed the Nigerian community in Ghana on the row.
Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila also travelled to Accra recently to hold talks with his Ghanaian counterpart on the crisis.
