Abubakar also posted pictures of him and the 86-year-old lawyer on his official Twitter handle.
Abubakar described his meeting with Nwabueze as an emotional one, saying the octogenarian reminded him of “the unfinished Nigerian Project”.
“Professor Ben Nwabueze is a patriot and Nigeria’s foremost constitutional lawyer. In a very emotional meeting in Enugu, he reminded me of the unfinished Nigerian Project. I assure him, and every Nigerian, that I’ll keep my word,” Abubakar wrote.
