President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived 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.
Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, confirmed the president’s arrival in a tweet on his personal handle, 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 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.
