Buhari Disgraced Jim Ovia, Wale Tinubu & Tony Elumelu For Showing Up At US/PMB Dinner

July 23, 2015 – Buhari Insulted Jim Ovia, Wale Tinubu & Tony Elumelu For Showing Up At US/PMB Dinner Uninvited, CBN Governor Emefiele Rebuked & Sent Back To Nigeria

It is now beyond speculation that the dinner Presi­dent Muhammadu Buhari had with the Nigerian business community in Washington after his official business with US authorities had a sour side to it.

At the dinner attended by mainly the team the president left Nigeria with and the business commu­nity of US made of mainly Nigerians and foreign­ers, two powerful Nigerian bankers (Tony Elumelu & Jim Ovia) that also owned banks sometime ago were found there.

During his remarks, Buhari departed from his prepared text to tell the surprised crowd he was surprised to see Mr. Ovia, and that he thought the CBN Governor had brought him along.  He also expressed surprise at the presence of Wale Tinubu, who happens to be a good friend of Buhari’s All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu.

The crowd, which mostly comprised of US businessmen, did not fully understand the heart of Buhari’s position which wasn’t part of his prepared speech for the evening.

Daily Sun source that was part of the president’s entourage and also at the dinner confirmed that the president confronted the two who had been part of the economic team of the past PDP administrations on their mission at the gathering.

In a telephone discussion with Daily Sun yester­day evening, the source disclosed that contrary to the trending news that the president excused the two from the dinner, he only asked them how they got to the event since he did not invite them or were they part of his team from Nigeria.

“I am sure what raised the curiosity of the presi­dent is because he approved the list of the people that travelled with him himself and those that were meant for the dinner. He didn’t leave that to anybody to do, therefore he is aware of those that he invited. So it was somehow embarrassing that he saw them there especially with their relationship with the PDP ad­ministrations since 1999.

“He asked them why and how they got there and everybody heard it because it wasn’t in secret, the source hinted authoritatively.

Because of the link and clout the two have in the banking sector, Daily Sun found that, early yesterday, Nigerian time, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Emefiele (CBN) that was part of the president entourage was sent back to Nigeria for betraying Buhari’s trust.

    They all deserve the insult. They think it is in Nigeria when they can lobby to get anything. Buhari should sack Emefiele because Jonathan put him there

    Why should he be sacked?? Emefiele represent interest of his Boss Gim but both are represent interest of thousand of there staff. My dear if government policy go against them then massive job loss may result who knows who will be affected,you may also have people that work with Zenith bank. BUT am happy he said he was not surprise to Wale Tinubu

    So leave them alone they have to protect there business & your job.

    When Buhari said it won’t be business as usual, Emefiele thought he was kidding. If he truly invited them, he will soon find out.

    @ Yomi, dont be deceived, that is why most business men and business owners fail in their businesses simply because they do not know when to make the immediate and right decision to fire whoever regardless of the persons standing in the company… Note that whoever is against the goal of the company or organization must be uprooted immediately else that person will bring about the fall of that company/organization… The point is if the CBN chieftain is the one that leaked itinerary of the president and invited persons not included in the initial invitation list of the president such individual must be done away with regardless of his or her clot in the business world… lets not forget so soon the incident that happened quite recently when the vice president went to visit victims of bomb blast in the north, shortly before his arrival persons were arrested for trying to plant bomb or bomb already detonated in that area… cant really remember the exact story at this mnt…however the point am trying to make is that, someone in the presidency who had the itinerary of the vice president may have leak his movement if not for God’s intervention the reverse would have been the case… as reminded by JOE its wont be business as usual in this dispensation.

    Wetin, what is wrong in identifying with Mr. President? They want to improve their business and see how they will contribute to the growth of the economy as well. Buhari should not take it personal, it is a collective thing you know!

    Based on the two gentlemen pedigree in business circle, in my own opinion, the president should have been a bid more diplomatic in handling the situation since some foreigners were also at the dinner. There is no need ‘washing our dirty linen outside’

    The best thing Buhari should do now is to relieve the cbn governor of his job.

    @ Adanne and Uwem, everything in life has its place regardless of who or what they are.. they fact that they are astute businessmen is more reason why they must understand that there is a place and time for everytin… their economic status does not grant them free access to power.. they must know their places and respect themselves… its not biz as usual…
