Former minister of Power and chairman of the SEESS, Bart Nnaji, says that Nigerian leader Muhammadu Buhari will be present at the South-East Economic and Security Summit (SEESS) holding in Enugu on Thursday December 22.
Former president Olusegun Obasanjo as well as five governors of the five Southeast states will also grace the event.
The report is coming barely hours after Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) told President Buhari that he is not welcomed to Enugu and the Southeast in general.
Speaking today in Enugu, Nnaji explained,
“President Muhammadu Buhari has confirmed his participation in the maiden South-East Economic and Security Summit.
“We are also pleased to announce that former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who has been a strong advocate for the convocation of a summit not pivoted on politics but rather on the economic and developmental premise for the region and other regions, has also committed to attend.
“All five governors from the south-eastern states will be participating in the summit, and they will lead other eminent personalities and delegates to discuss issues of common interest, including infrastructure, agriculture, health, tourism, security as well as financing the region’s economic programme.”
