Why Trump did not invite Buhari to his inauguration – Presidency
The presidency has insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari, was not snubbed for the inauguration ceremony of US president-elect, Donald Trump.
Trump will be installed as the 45th American president today, Friday, January 20, 2017.
In a statement released on Thursday by Buhari’s media aide, Malam Garba, the presidency said: “Gentlemen, I think we should respond to refute this falsehood. The US does not invite Heads of State or President to the inauguration of their Presidents. Our President could therefore, not have been snubbed.”
This comes as rumours have been circulating on social media that Trump chose Buhari’s predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, as Nigeria’s representative at the ceremony.
