Jimoh Ibrahim barred from meeting Yar’Adua

Despite the seeming success of Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim, the Group Managing Director of NICON Insurance Plc, he seem to be having challenges breaking the barrier of easy access to relate with the President, Alhaji Umar Yar’Adua.

This became evident during the inauguration of the new Ghanaian President in Accra, Ghana.

Ibrahim was not privileged like Femi Otedola and Aliko Dangote who were part of the presidential entourage aboard the presidential jet. He arrived Ghana via a commercial flight.

While Yar’Adua was meeting with Musiliu Obanikoro and another diplomat in the Presidential lounge at the airport, Barr. Jimoh Ibrahim made frantic efforts to meet with him but the President’s aides would not permit the unscheduled meeting.

While Ibrahim was trying to persuade the aide, President Yar’Adua and his team decided to move. Ibrahim and others were courteously shoved to pave way for the President.

It is believed that Barr. Jimoh Ibrahim made the Ghana trip after efforts to connect the President in Abuja failed.
