The Presidency on Sunday refuted media reports insinuating that President Goodluck Jonathan was no where to be found when he was scheduled to address a special summit of African Heads of State and Government to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Organisation of African Unity/African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Saturday.

Some media houses carried reports on Sunday indicating that the president was not  in the hall to make his speech at the summit, resulting in the summit announcer calling on another speaker.

Meanwhile, The federal government has vowed that the activities of the Islamist insurgents, otherwise known as Boko Haram must be curtailed at all cost.
