President Buhari is currently in Japan to participate in the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development

The Presidency has reacted to the alleged report by the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, that President Muhammadu Buhari is missing in Japan.

The Presidency said the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has “nothing to do with President Muhammadu Buhari since he arrived Yokohama, Japan, on Monday.”

ASB News reported that Buhari departed Nigeria on Sunday for Japan to participate in the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) holding in the City of Yokohama, August 28-30, 2019.

However, IPOB alleged that the President was not in Japan, stressing that photographs of Buhari were photoshopped.

Responding to the allegation, Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, urged Nigerians to disregard the claims by IPOB.

In a statement by the special adviser on media and publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina said: “Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora are urged 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.

“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.”

  1. What did the Nigerian president go do/see when the Japanese Prime Minister was in France for the G7 summit with other world leaders? Please you people should stop lying, its really getting annoying. And again did he go for International Youth Fellowship or International Conference on African Development?
