Legit.ng notes that Shehu said that the address on the letter read: “His Excellency, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR, Former President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, Agbe L’Oba House, Quarry Road, Ibara, P.O.Box 2286, Abeokuta, Ogun State.” Shehu stated that the invitation was sent to Obasanjo’s known forwarding address, detailing out all the major events, and the invitation cards were delivered by a reputable courier company as confirmed. He added that the receipt of the letter and invitation cards as delivered by the courier company was confirmed by Mr Taiwo Ojo, the long standing Personal Secretary to the former President. Shehu said: “If, in the circumstance, Chief Obasanjo did not see or receive the letter and invitation cards as published by Vanguard newspaper (Page 16, June 16, 2019) and several other news platforms, then the former President needs to find out what is happening with his own secretariat. ”The government office did its job diligently and should not be blemished for no reason.” Former Nigerian leaders including Obasanjo, Yakubu Gowon, Ibrahim Babangida, Abdulsalami Abubakar and Chief Ernest Shonekan were reportedly absent during the June 12 Democracy Day event in Abuja.
