Leaders of Economic Community of West African States meeting in Accra showed utter disrespect to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Saturday.
Osinbajo who is representing President Muhammadu Buhari at the summit was pushed to the third row in a photograph taken by Osinbajo’s personal Photographer, Tolani Alli.
Osinbajo was hardly visible in the picture, as Macky Sall of Senegal, host Nana Akufo-Addo, Abubakar Ouattara of Ivory Coast and Maada Bio of Sierra Leone took the front row.
If this is the rule of diplomatic protocol, we think there is a something wrong for the rep of the leader of the biggest black nation on Earth to be turned into an ‘invisible man’ at the summit.
