President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Dame Patience, yesterday, arrived Incheon Airport, South Korea in the company of Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan and his Taraba State counterpart, Danbaba Suntai for the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul.
This explains the absence of the two Governors at last Saturday's Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) national convention where the party's new National Working Committee (NWC) members were picked and inaugurated.
Also in the president's delegation are Ministers for Power, Professor Barth Nnaji; Science and Technology, Professor Ita Ewa Henshaw; Housing, Ms Ama Pepple and Transport, Senator Idris Umar.
As soon as the presidential jet touched down at the airport at 8.20pm Korean time (about 12.30pm Nigerian time), Jonathan was received by the Nigerian Delegation in the country led by the Ambassador of Nigeria to Korea, Desmond Akawo.
Jonathan is also expected to open the Nigerian-Korea Investment and business forum at the Korean Chamber of Commerce building in the afternoon of today before heading for the opening ceremony of the Nuclear Security summit in Seoul which is largely restricted to the 56 Heads of State and three private companies.
The world leaders will devote the entire Tuesday to talks on nuclear safety and how to protect nuclear materials from getting into the wrong hands and become a threat to the world.
