I.P.O.B Warned The President To Stay Away From The Summit

President Muhammadu Buhari’s absence  at Igbo summit has raised eyebrows among the eminent sons of the south-east.

The President did not attend the event neither did he send a representative for the summit! But formal President Olusegun Obasanjo was present and Buhari’s glory was given to him.

The summit was held just 48 hours after the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) warned the president to stay away from the summit.

The Punch reports that President Buhari’s absence was a major talking point at the event with several speakers expressing surprise and in other cases, confusion at the development.

So embarrassed were the organisers of the event that Buhari’s name had to eventually be substituted with that of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who graced the occasion.

Also the chairman of the south east security and Economic summit, Barth Nnaji a former power minister proceeded to name Obasanjo the distinguished guest of house while also addressing him in the vote of thanks.
