Invited guests have gathered at a top hotel in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, for the launch of My Transition Hours, a book by former President Goodluck Jonathan.
From what I can see the hall at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel is filled to capacity.
The former presidents of Ghana, John Mahama, Sierra Leone, Ernest Bai Koroma and Benin, Boni Yayi, are among the dignitaries attending the event.
Mr Jonathan’s predecessor and one of his main critics, Olusegun Obasanjo, is also here.
President Muhammadu Buhari is not at the event though a senior government official is present. But his main rival for president in February’s election, Atiku Abubakar, has turned up.
The timing of the launch of the autobiography has raised questions, coming just days after the electoral commission lifted the ban on political campaigning ahead of the election.
