Obstacles Faced by Governor Ganduje and Governor Soludo at Inauguration Ceremony
During the swearing-in ceremony of President Tinubu at Eagle Square in Abuja, outgoing Kano state Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and current Anambra state Governor Charles Soludo encountered difficulties.
They attempted to enter the section designated for dignitaries with their green invitation cards, but security operatives stopped them, explaining that only individuals with gold cards were allowed access.
Ganduje and Soludo’s Response to the Situation
Ganduje and his wife waited for more than 10 minutes before realizing they would not be granted entry.
Eventually, they returned to the section reserved for individuals with green invitation cards.
Similarly, Soludo had a brief altercation with the security operatives but eventually decided to join the section designated for those with green invitation cards.
