President Goodluck Jonathan’s convoy was Tuesday involved in an accident in Paris as the Nigerian president was traveling with his aides to a meeting with the French President Francois Gerard Hollande, website, is reporting.

The website quoted French police sources as saying that the accident occurred 15 minutes away from the Elysee Palace, the venue of the official meeting with the French leader.

“The car involved in the accident was the fifth car behind that of President Jonathan,” said the police source.

The report further said Jamilu Waziri, a presidential liaison officer (PLO), was injured in the accident and had to be taken to a Paris hospital where he received treatment for a broken ankle.

As a result of the accident, Mr. Waziri was unable to attend the meeting, the report said.

The website further said Mr. Waziri later flew with President Jonathan back to Abuja.

SaharaReporters quoted French officials as confirming  the incident.

The officials reportedly said the large size of the Nigerian delegation meant that Mr. Jonathan’s aides could not fit into the official vehicles provided by the French government.

  • Hello,
    Our leaders both past n present refused learning from their mistakes they don’t need all the sycophants that follow in the name of aides spending billions of naira for them to enjoy the best of luxury at the expence of masses.
