Almost a week after the presidential election, official activities are yet to pick up in the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Hours after President Goodluck Jonathan was officially defeated by General Mohammadu Buhari in the keenly contested election, many who work inside Aso Rock are yet to come to terms with the reality that it is over.
The offices of Vice President Namadi Sambo and First Lady Patience Jonathan have been under lock and key since INEC announced Buhari as winner.
Although the president was in his office, most of the officials were not seen around the State House.
The weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting did not hold on Wednesday. Many of the aides of the president were also nowhere to be found at the seat of power.
The few men sighted around earlier were the Comptroller-General of Customs Dikko Inde Abdullah, Director-General of the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP) Emeka Ezeh, Executive Secretary of the National Christian Pilgrims Commission John Kennedy Opara and the Special Adviser to the President on Ethics and Values Sarah Jubril.
