Media mogul, Dele Momodu, has queried Presidency Muhammadu Buhari’s statement to ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, seeking an explanation for his absence at democracy day celebration on June 12.

DAILY POST reported that Obasanjo, former President Goodluck Jonathan, General Gowon, Babangida, among others were not present at the event.

Obasanjo, however, claimed that he was not invited for the national event.

However, in a statement to DAILY POST on Wednesday by his Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari said Obasanjo owes Nigerians explanation on why he did not attend the programme.

He said, “The former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, owes an answer to Nigerians on his absence from the 2019 Presidential inauguration and Democracy Day celebration because the claim that he was not invited or he did not receive an invitation cannot be sustained.

“Since the claim was first made, elements in the polity that have deliberately and consistently been trying to lead the country toward polarization have cashed in on it, throwing all manner of rubbish at the Buhari Presidency.”

However, reacting Momodu took to his Twitter page, stating that everyone is entitled to rights of movement and association.

He expressed surprise over Presidency statement, adding that Obasanjo has the right to be absent at the occasion.

Momodu wrote: “No rights of movement or association again?

“Obasanjo never pretended to like Buhari’s government and that is his prerogative.”
