The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) group has had nothing to
do with President Muhammadu Buhari since he arrived Yokohama, Japan on
Monday, the presidency has started.
A statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina urged
Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora to disregard concocted stories backed with
spurious visuals, of any protest or harassment of the President and his team.
He said: “It is the stock-in-trade of hate mongers, who do not realize that the rest of
Nigerians have left them far behind.
“President Buhari will make his presence at the Seventh Tokyo International Conference
on African Development (TICAD7) count for Nigeria, and no scare-mongering or
sabre-rattling will detract from the outing.”
