Gbeleyi Abayomi

A viral tweet by Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide, with claims that Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari was not invited to the Group of Seven (G-7) summit due to Buhari’s “misrule” is misleading.

The G7 summit or ‘Group of Seven’, meets each year, bringing together the heads of state and government of the world’s seven largest so-called advanced economies: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States, plus the presidents of the European Commission and European Council.

Traditionally, representatives of other nations and international organisations are also invited to attend. 2019 edition was held on 24–26 August 2019 in France.
