Anyaoku reacts to purported invitation to Atiku Abubakar’s Book Presentation

Emeka Anyaoku

EMEKA Anyaoku says that his attention has been drawn to the announcement in This Day newspaper of September 26, 2022 that he would be a Special Guest of Honour at Atiku Abubakar’s book presentation scheduled for September 28, 2022 at Chida Hotels Events Centre in Abuja and that “Given the understandable propensity to read political meanings in public associations at this time of competition by political parties in the context of 2023 national elections, I wish to unequivocally state that nobody sought and obtained my agreement to be present at this particular book presentation.”

Anyaoku said in a statement that he had accepted the unreserved apologies rendered to him by the organizers of the event and “wish to reiterate that I remain non-partisan in praying that my country Nigeria will in 2023 elect people of proven competence and character whose sole mission will be to serve the national interests”.
