Nigeria’s president left for the G8 economic summit in Canada last night with a huge delegation of 140 comprising officials and hangers-on. Last week Saharareporters broke the news that Jonathan had planned to travel with a delegation of 200 people. The expose compelled the protocol department at the presidency to reduce the numbers, but our sources said over 60 extra visa applications could not be treated because they were “incomplete.” Nigeria is one of the six African countries invited to the summit as observers, but Jonathan’s delegation will be the largest of all the countries attending the event in the small resort town of Muskoka near Toronto.

It will also be bigger than all the other African countries put together. The other African nations attending are coming with manageable delegations of about 15-20 in size, but the Nigerian delegation is already causing security nightmare for the Canadian government since Nigeria was recently designated by the US as one of the 14 countries being watched over issues of terrorism.
