Pres. Buhari leaves guests at inaugural lunch to attend Jumat service

Pres. Buhari yesterday Friday May 29th left some African leaders and other guests who had moved with him from the Eagles Square to the new Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa to celebrate his inauguration, midway into the programme to attend Jumat service. When he didn't return after many hours, organizers of the event had to invite VP Osinbajo to make remarks on behalf of Buhari.
Osinbajo, in his remarks, apologised to the guests for the President’s absence. He explained that he left in order to take part in Jumat prayers. The President did not return to the venue before the programme ended. The vice-president thanked the African leaders for attending the inauguration.“On behalf of the people of Nigeria and most especially on behalf of the President, I thank you and wish you safe journey back home.”
The vice-president later saw the African leaders off on behalf of the President before being driven away in his official car." Punch reports

Well 1. If he Mr President is truly serving a true God, was he supposed to honor the quest more than God?
2. He can't stand or wait in a long meeting, he is an old man, his VP will be seen doing most of the official work quote me, you can't cheat nature, he is an old man.
I pray he sha give us the new part to the change we want, he is not the change but a part way... God bless our president and the federal repuplic of Nigeria.

There is nothing wrong with d president leaving for prayers, it is not a big deal! As he is a muslim, prayers are compulsory in islam and must be observed at the right time.

While it may seem harmless and even right to leave your guests to attend to your prayers, he has set a precedence that will reverberate all over Nigeria with Muslims and Christains doing same. But lets not forget, Nigeria is a secular state.

Anonymous said...

There's no doubt that most people who would criticize PMB for this act are christians. Christians often take their allegiance to God for granted, and choose when to put God first. Sorry, it is not so in Islam. In Islam, allegiance to God is no.1, anywhere anytime. So deal with that.

All haters of Buhari who are desperately wishing he fails and are desperately searching for an occassion to say "Aha! he's not different from others.." should be prepared to wound themselves with hypertension for the following reasons:
1. Buhari is not here to please his haters. They can hate themselves to hypertension for all he cares.
2. The grace and prayers upon Buhari's life and administration is just too much that the hand of God is on his side to succeed. Whoever God has blessed, no man can curse.
3. Haters will continue to live in self-inflicted misery even when everybody lives in splendour. Hate blinds from seeing any good.

How I wish Nigerians will be more enlightened and focused!! You have started condemning less than one day President instead of praying for him. Dont u know that his success is the success of the country, which will reflect on your life? We complained about everything and we do nothing about it, only to come on blogs and be making unnecessary comments!! Why do u have the attitude of let's wait and see? Why dont u use that attitude to go on your knees and call on God to direct him when he is taking decisions about your life!!! You have this attitude becos GEJ didnt win, GEJ has wealth for his next generation to come........hmmm..... let us think and move this country forward on our knees......

The stupid excuses that people are putting forward to this rude action of Buhari's shows me how blinded people have become in the process of supporting him. My dears, the whole of you Buhari's supporters should get your mouths ready to constantly come to his defence because there will be a lot of blunders like it in the next several years. if it was GEJ that did this, the insults and would have put some faint hearted to coma. What i always say is that GEJ will be vindicated in the next 6months(watch out for how PMB will handle Boko Haram)

Yet people will defend him. With International dignitaries and you left without excuse and did not return for the rest of the event. Does it show respect or regards? How does he expect to invite them next time and they will honour? We know God first but Jumat prayer last for maximum 30 min. Well, Nigerians are yet to see anything. Cheers. Don Casey.

Some of u did not notice this on that day of swearing in he came in with his vice who promptly went to greet this former heads of state and foreign heads ur president went and sat down without greeting anyone until Obj went and spoke to him b4 he stood up and went to greet them if he continues.
