Atiku Abubakar, the former Vice President and presidential candidate, has declined First Lady Aisha Buhari’s invitation to a Ramadan Iftar dinner at the State House Conference Centre.
Reno Omokri, an ex-presidential adviser and a loyalist of the former vice president, told Anaedoonline.ng about it.
In a tweet, Omokri reacted to the invitation by claiming that Aisha’s invitation was actually a summons.
He advised Nigerians not to vote for any contestant who attends the event, notwithstanding the fact that the First Lady lacks moral or constitutional power to call anybody.
Reno Omokri tweeted: “I don’t know about other aspirants, but I can assure Nigerians that Atiku Abubakar will never attend this event, or any other summons disguised as an invite by Aisha Buhari. Imagine the audacity! Phones are not allowed? Is Aisha herself allowed? Tufiakwa! Nonsense!
“Any Presidential aspirant that accepts this summons by Aisha Buhari, disguised as an invitation, is not a man and should not be voted for. Aisha lacks moral or constitutional authority to summon anyone. A woman whose husband described as belonging to his other room?”
According to Anaedoonline.ng, presidential candidates from various political parties are anticipated to arrive at the presidential palace on Saturday around 6:30 p.m.
In an invitation letter to the hopefuls, President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife advised them not to bring any electronic devices with them, except for their invitation cards, which would act as their admission ticket.
The injunction does not, however, apply to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, governors, or ministers who would be present at the meeting.
