Nigerian First Lady, Aisha Buhari has invited all the Presidential aspirants from various political parties to have Ramadan Iftar dinner with her, on Saturday, April 23, 2022, at State House Conference Centre.
In an invitation letter seen by TOS NEWS, the invitees were asked not to come along with their mobile devices, except for their invitation cards which would be used as entry pass.
It was gathered that this directive will not apply to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and governors and ministers who are expected to be at the meeting.
The spokesperson of the First Lady, Aliyu Abdullahi, who confirmed the meeting said, “There is nothing here. This is a standard operational protocol in the Villa when you are having a meeting with either of the three occupants of the Presidency.
“If they are coming for an event, this is supposed to be DSS enforced when the president is having an event or the Vice President is having an event or the first lady is having an event. Because outsiders will come. That’s the security and standard protocol.
“That does not apply to the Vice President. How can you expect that to apply to the Vice President or even to ministers?”
