Presidency To Obasanjo: Tell Nigerians The Truth About Your Absence From Buhari’s Inauguration

Obasanjo

The Presidency has debunked former President Olusegun Obasanjo claim that he was not invited or he did not receive an invitation to President Muhammadu Buhari’s inauguration on May 29 and Democracy Day ceremony on June 12.

In a scathing statement on Wednesday, the presidency said the former president’s lie cannot be sustained.

“He owes an answer to Nigerians on his absence from the 2019 Presidential inauguration and Democracy Day celebration”, said Malam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on media and publicity.

“Since the claim was first made, elements in the polity that have deliberately and consistently been trying to lead the country toward polarization have cashed in on it, throwing all manner of rubbish at the Buhari Presidency.

“The fact remains that the Secretary to the Government, Boss Mustapha wrote on May 16th, 2019 to:

“His Excellency, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR, Former President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, Agbe L’Oba House, Quarry Road, Ibara, P.O.Box 2286, Abeokuta, Ogun State.”

“The invitation was sent to Chief Obasanjo’s known forwarding address, detailing out all the major events, and the invitation cards were delivered by a reputable courier company as confirmed.

“The receipt of the letter and invitation cards as delivered by the courier company was confirmed by Mr. Taiwo Ojo, the long standing Personal Secretary to the former President.

“If, in the circumstance, Chief Obasanjo did not see or receive the letter and invitation cards as published by Vanguard newspaper (Page 16, June 16, 2019) and several other news platforms, then the former President needs to find out what is happening with his own secretariat.

“The government office did its job diligently and should not be blemished for no reason”, Garba said.
