Addressing the pressmen after the meeting, Jonathan who handed power to the incumbent president having lost the presidential election in 2015, said he was at the Aso Rock to brief Buhari about the political situation in The Gambia.

The Gambia, a West African state, is facing a political crisis after its president Adama Barrow said he is seeking reelection despite the crisis in the country.

The declaration has made some groups to embark on a protest asking President Barrow to honour the agreement that he would only serve a single term.

Speaking further, Jonathan, who was an active ECOWAS envoy to Mali, said he briefed the president about the outcome of his mission to the Gambian capital, Banjul.
