Angered by the tardiness of dignitaries in arriving for a function, former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Thursday, walked out of the venue.

The event in question was the Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) in charge of Zone II maiden biannual special training and capacity building programme,

Obasanjo was the Special Guest of Honour at the event held at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island.

But, except for junior police officers, no other dignitary arrived on time and after waiting for them for over 90 minutes, Obasanjo got upset and returned home.

The event billed for 10:30 a.m., didn’t begin until 11:52 a.m.

A visibly angry Obasanjo advised the police authorities to be ready when next they invite him.

Obasanjo informed the organisers that he had to return to Ogun State for an event he left midway to attend the police training.

“Next time, before you call me, please be ready,” Obasanjo said.
