Sierra Leone’s presidential inauguration had quite a number of leaders especially across West Africa in attendance. President Maada Bio has delivered an inaugural speech on his transformation agenda for the country.
Nigeria was represented at the diplomatic level by vice-president Prof. Yemi Osinbajo. President Buhari returned to Abuja on Saturday after routine medical checks, likely the reason he did not attend.
At the entertainment level as well, Nigeria is pretty much sorted with a dominant showing. Top Nollywood stars were in attendance – Omotola, Mercy Johnson and Mr. Ibu were all pictured at the venue of the event.
It is not known in what capacity they were attending but one other artiste Musician Davido is in Sierra Leone on official invitation.
Davido in a Twitter post said he was billed to perform at the inaugural ball that takes place later tonight. The “if” and “Fall” hitmaker continues to make waves across Africa and beyond.
