Emeka Anyaoku, a former secretary-general of the Commonwealth, has withdrawn from an advertisement listing him as a special guest of honor at Atiku Abubakar’s book presentation.
Three volumes on his leadership style and contributions to Nigeria’s democratic and constitutional development are anticipated to be released by the PDP presidential contender in the run-up to the 2023 elections.
The event will take place in Abuja’s Chida Hotels Events Center on Wednesday, September 28.
Anyaoku clarified in a statement that attendance at the book presentation was not requested with his approval.
He also said that he had “accepted the unreserved apologies made to me by the event organizers” and reaffirmed his apolitical stance.,
