No IPOB Presence Near Buhari In Japan a Presidency.
The Presidency has assured that the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) group has had nothing to do with President Muhammadu Buhari since he arrived Yokohama, Japan, on Monday.
A statement issued on Monday by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), urged Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora to disregard 'concocted stories, backed with spurious visuals, of any protest or harassment of the President and his team. It is the stock-in-trade of hate mongers, who do not realize that the rest of Nigerians have left them far behind.'
The statement said President Buhari will make his presence at the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) count for Nigeria, and no scare-mongering or sabre-rattling will detract from the outing.
