First Lady of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari, will host presidential aspirants across political parties to an Iftar dinner at the Presidential villa come Saturday.
The information contained in an invitation letter to the guests was sighted in Abuja on Thursday.
Invitees to the dinner are instructed to be at the venue with their invitation cards which serve as an entry pass and be without their mobile devices.
Although, according to the Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the First Lady, Aliyu Abdullah stated that, the ‘drop phone’ instruction on the invitation will naturally not apply to some of the attendees, including Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, governors and ministers that will be attending.
Abdullahi, who confirmed the meeting, said “There is nothing here. This is a standard operational protocol in the Villa when you are having either of the three occupants of the Presidency.
"If they are coming for an event, this is supposed to be DSS enforced.
“Whether the president is having an event or the Vice President is having an event or the First Lady is having an event, because outsiders will come, that’s the security and standard protocol.
“That does not apply to the Vice President. How can you expect that to apply to the Vice President or even to ministers.”
