El-Rufai visits Buhari as northern leaders mourn bomb accident in Kaduna village
The meeting came at a time when the northern leaders were converging at Tudun Biri, a community in Kaduna state, which was accidentally bombed by the Nigerian army in a miscalculated deployment.
Northern leaders have condemned the accident, while many of them, including Vice President Kashim Shettima and the leadership of the senate, had visited the village to commiserate with the families of the over 120 people who died in the incident.
Why El-Rufai visits Buhari in Daura
But Shehu on Monday said that former President Buhari was joyous in receiving El-Rufai in what he called a courtesy visit.
His tweet reads:
"This afternoon, I had the privilege of being with the former President, Muhammadu Buhari, as he received my old schoolmate, Nasir El-Rufa'i, who came on a goodwill visit to schoolmate, Daura.
"The former President had a joyous moment with the visiting former Governor."
