Both men held hands and walked into his residence for a closed door meeting which did not last for more than 10 minutes or thereabout.
Danjuma who was one time the Minister of Defence, said he was in the presidential villa to visit the President and ask how things were as he has been outside the country.
When asked what he discussed with the president when both of them emerged at 9.42am, he replied it was “Confidential”.
Continuing he said, “Don’t speculate. I came to visit the President and find out how things are going. I have been abroad. I just came back”.
Asked if he was going to canvass support for the president ahead of the presidential elections, he replied “I don’t canvass. I am not in any of the political parties. The president is the president of the country”.
Danjuma who is also the Chairman of the Victims Support Fund, a fund meant to rehabilitate those affected by the Boko Haram activities in the north east, had earlier in the year called for the arrest of Asari Dokubo and Government Ekpemudo (alias Tompolo) for threatening that the would be war if Jonathan is not re-elected.
Both ex-militants had through a group, Leadership, Peace and Cultural Development Initiative was courting trouble by calling for their arrest.
The group had while giving Danjuma a week to apologize to both ex-militants, said urged him to bear in mind that the money he was enjoying today was from the oil bloc, in the region which came about from their sacrifices and blood.
They had said, “as much as he has the right to free speech, Danjuma ought to know that the oil money he is enjoying today, through his ownership of oil blocs, came from our sacrifices and blood. We staked our life to fight for the development of our country. We fought for freedom for our land and it pais us that people like Danjuma who have reaped bountifully from the Niger Delta, can wake up to insult our sensibilities.
“For Danjuma to call for the arrest of Asari Dokubo, then he has walked on the tail of the serpent. The much we know is that we the ex-militants who decided to drop our guns to Jin forces with the federal government to develop the country, especially the Niger Delta have never said anything or taken any action that would warrant such explosives from Danjuma”.
