Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived Owerri, the Imo state capital. Southeast Nigeria.
Platforms Africa reports that Buhari, who doubles as the Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces, landed at the Sam Mbakwe Airport and was received by dignitaries.
The President is set to commission several projects by the state governor, Hope Uzodinma.
Governor Hope Uzodinma, in a post on Facebook, stated that the President is in the state to commission some projects.
He wrote, “It is with a heart full of gratitude that I, on behalf of the good people of Imo State, welcome His Excellency President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR to the Eastern Heartland on a working visit to commission some of our completed people-oriented projects.
“Mr President, we are delighted to have you in Imo State on this august occasion despite your tight schedules and it’s our pleasure that while in Imo State, you will enjoy the hospitality and conviviality of our people.”
Meanwhile, the police have vowed to crush people who want to cause trouble during and after the President’s visit.
Police gave the warning after Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, issued a sit-at-home order in Imo and four other southeastern states in apparent disapproval of Buhari’s visit.
