Former President Goodluck Jonathan attracted the most attention in Aso Rock on Wednesday as he attended his first Council of State meeting as a former president.
At the ongoing Council of State meeting which is being held at the presidential villa, Abuja, there was a reported mild drama at the Aso Rock gathering as photographers and cameramen ‘abandoned’ President Muhammadu Buhari for his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan.
According to a report by DailyTrust, the cameramen and photographers focused on Jonathan for some minutes while President Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, governors and other officials in attendance remained standing.
