Tayo Oviosu, the CEO and founder of Paga, has revealed what happened to him at the ongoing Future Investment Initiative (FII) summit.
According to Tayo, despite leaving early to book a seat for himself, he was asked to vacate it for 3 governors who came late to the summit.
Read what he share don Twitter:
”This afternoon I went early to the FII session to get a good seat. To my luck, speakers got the front rows. I ended up getting 3rd row smack in the middle. After about an hour then the main event – world leaders speaking – was about to start.
All the dignitaries started coming in. Nigeria’s President was two seats ahead of me and Minister of Communications right in front of me – we said hello and had a brief chat. Two guys who were Nigerian came and sat next to me.
I start talking to the person next to me Next thing the Nigerian guys are asking me to leave my seat so that all 3 Nigerian governors can have a prime seat. I was so shocked. Like I said, No. He asked if I was Nigerian. I said Yes. And I went back to my conversation. Why do we behave like this???
I wonder if it’s because I was in Paga tee, jeans, and a sports coat. If I were in traditional would he have done that?”
