President Muhammadu Buhari has landed in Daura, his hometown, for a one week private visit.
The president left the presidential villa, Abuja after Friday Muslim prayers for his home state, Katsina.
However, presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, confirmed the president’s arrival in a tweet on his personal handle @GarShehu, saying: “President Muhammadu Buhari has just landed at the Helipad in Daura, Katsina State for a weeklong private visit.”
Shehu, in an official statement later, confirmed that while in Daura, President Buhari will carry out a number of private engagements but is expected to participate virtually in the meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday, to be presided over by the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
The statement recalled that the president last visited his hometown in December 2019, having stayed away largely due to the global COVID-19 situation.
