President Muhammadu Buhari was on Wednesday ‘abandoned’ in a dramatic manner by photojournalists, cameramen for his predecessor, former President Goodluck Jonathan, when he arrived the Presidential Villa to attend the first Council of State meeting under Buhari in Abuja.
Buhari led Jonathan as well as former Head of State Abdulsalami Abubakar and former Head of the Interim National Government Chief Ernest Shonekan to the meeting.
The cameramen and photographers focused on Jonathan for about one minute while Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, governors and other officials in attendance remained standing.
This is the first meeting of Council of State to be attended by Jonathan since Buhari became president.
The meeting is still going.
