All efforts by the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, to speak with Buhari aboard the British Airways aircraft failed abysmally as the President-Elect only greeted her during the boarding process and then quietly settled into his
seat 2K in First Class. .
The embattled Minister, SaharaReporters learnt, had somehow booked herself into seat 3K, seating directly behind Buhari on the 6-hour flight. Their sources said she rose up a few times and tried to stir up a conversation with the President-Elect, but that he only nodded and let her get back to her seat without permitting any dialogue. .
The flight arrived Heathrow in London at 2:15p.m. When the airline crew announced passenger disembarkation, Buhari asked if Diezani had any of her bags in the overhead compartment so he could step out of her way. It then turned out she had occupied the entire overheard compartments with several of her carry-on bags, traveled with 2 of her aides also in First Class. Buhari was reportedly traveling with only one aide…… he promised to chat wt her later through Whatsapp……
