On Thursday, some Very Important Persons (VIPs) converged on the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the Nigerian capital,  for the launch of a book written in honour of First Lady Aisha Buhari.

The book, a biography titled, ‘Aisha Buhari: Being different’, was written by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Administration and Women Affairs, Dr Hajo Sani.

The launching was well attended though some of the key persons invited were conspicuously absent.  Aliko Dangote, Femi Otedola, Abdulsamad Rabiu, Muhammadu Indimi, and Jim Ovia were among those who sent representatives.

But Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and many governors were on the ground.
