The presidency has released a statement as regards claims by former President Olusegun Obasanjo that he was not invited to the 2019 presidential inauguration and Democracy Day celebrations.
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” the statement read
