Buhari ignores guests, attends jumat prayers.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday left some African leaders and other guests who were at the new Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa to celebrate his inauguration midway into the programme.

The guests had moved with him from the Eagles Square where he and Vice- President Yemi Osinbajo had earlier taken their oaths of office to the Villa for a luncheon.

Buhari, however, left the venue midway into the programme while his guests were taking their lunch.

After waiting for a while for the President to return, organisers decided to invite Osinbajo to make remarks on behalf of Buhari.

The crest of the Commander-in-Chief was quickly removed from the podium to enable the vice-president make use of it. Osinbajo, in his remarks, apologised to the guests for the President’s absence.
He explained that he left in order to take part in Jumat prayers.

The President did not return to the venue before the programme ended.
