Questions raised as to the reason for absence of Nigeria’s president, deputy
By John Eche
Questions are being asked as to whether Nigeria officially snubbed the burial Thursday of former United Nations Secretary General, Dr. Kofi Annan.
The event which took place in Accra, Ghana where the eminent West African statesman hailed from, was witnessed by the cream of the international community.
Senate President Bukola Saraki and former President Olusegun Obasanjo appeared to be the most visible Nigerians at the event with no trace being seen of either incumbent ECOWAS Chairman and President of the largest nation in the sub-region, Muhammadu Buhari or his deputy, Prof Yemi Osinbajo.
Other than Bukola Saraki, another presidential aspirant in Nigeria’s 2019 electoral process, Professor Kingsley Moghalu attended the burial.
