igeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari, would on Saturday have a Ramadan Iftar dinner with all Presidential aspirants from various political parties, who are not to come along with their mobile devices.
In an invitation letter, the dinner would take place at the State House Conference Centre, Abuja.
The invitees were strictly instructed to come only with their invitation cards which would serve as their entry pass.
It was gathered that the instruction does not apply to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, governors and ministers who are expected to be at the meeting.
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?”
