The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, was given a marching order by the Commander, Guards Brigade, Brig. Gen Umar Musa, on Wednesday, for breaching protocol, when the latter decided to take part in President Muhammadu Buhari’s inauguration, at the Eagle Square.
Several dignitaries who had vital roles to play in the inauguration of the President, had lined up along the red carpet leading to where the President took the Oath of Office.
The dignitaries included: The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Gabriel Olonisakin; the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai; the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal, Sadique Abubakar; Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok Ibas.
Others lined up were the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu; and the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, who administered the Oaths of Allegiance and Office to the President and Vice President.
Oshiomhole, who stood by the CJN, has hoped to shake hands with the President, when he passes through.
However, the Commander of the Guards Brigade, promptly asked Oshiomhole to leave the area and return to his seat, as he was not allowed to stand along with other top Government Officials. Oshiomhole shamefully went back to the seat, without saying a word.
