The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has reacted to comments surrounding President Buhari's recent visit to Owerri in Imo state. Adesina reacted during his interview with Ruben Abati on Arise News. The Presidential aide stated that President Buhari is the Ogbuagu 1 of Aba, and a traditional Chief in some other Southeastern States. You may recall that President Muhammadu Buhari recently visited Imo State to commission some infrastructural projects in the State. During his visit to Imo State, the President was received by stakeholders and prominent groups in the South-East region. Presidential aide, Femi Adesina, has since responded to comments trailing the visit. Speaking during a recent interview, Femi Adesina said, "The President was invited by the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, to visit and the President obliged. As for people saying the President was not welcomed in the South-East, who dare say that an elected President is not welcomed in any part of the country that elected him? Did they forget that the President fought for the unity of Nigeria?" Responding further, Adesina added, "The President is the Ogbuagu 1 of Aba in the South-East. Ogbuagu means the 'Loin Killer'. How can you tell a chief not to visit a part of an area where he is a local chief? President Buhari is a traditional Chief in Aba, Ebonyi and Enugu. How then can anyone say the President can not come to a region where he holds titles? He is an elected President, and he was not appointed."
