Christian Aburime, the media aide to Gov Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra state has rubbished reports that his principal was denied access into the VIP booth at President Bola Tinubu's inauguration at Eagles Square.
A video of a security agent talking to the governor while attempting to enter one of the booths at the inauguration made the rounds earlier today with many claiming the governor was bounced.
In a statement released, Aburime said that contrary to reports, the governor was being redirected by the security agent and not being denied entry.
‘’A very mischievous and misleading video is currently been circulated online by some mischief makers who derive pleasure in mis-informing the general public." the statement read.
''The video shows Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo, CFR, arriving the Eagle Square for the Presidential swearing-in ceremony in Abuja and was subsequently being re-directed courteously by protocol officials to the rightful position reserved for him at the other side of the VVIPs sitting positions
Redirecting invited guests to their rightful sitting position is neither an issue nor a condescending act
For the records, Governor Soludo remains one of the few Governors that was respectfully honoured and invited officially to attend the presidential swearing-in ceremony
Consequently, we call on the general public to disregard the trending video. It is pure mischief and deliberate act to mis-inform the public''
