JUST IN: Obasanjo, Jonathan absent at Buhari’s inauguration

By Philip Shimnom Clement
President Muhammadu Buhari and his vice, Yemi Osinbajo have just inaugurated for a second term in office.
However, absent at the Eagle square, venue of the inauguration were former presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan.
Obasanjo’s absence may not be unconnected with his position on the handling of security and economy of the country by the Buhari administration.
Also, he did not support the candidacy of the current president as he had endorsed Atiku Abubakar, candidate of the People’s Democratic party.
However, it is not clear why President Goodluck Jonathan did not attend the inauguration.
