President Muhammadu Buhari Friday arrived in Daura, Katsina State, to begin a 10-day visit to his country home for vacation.
Although the presidency says Buhari will spend one week in the state, however, with his arrival this Friday, sources said he would return at the end of next week making 10 days altogether.
The presidential aircraft carrying the president and some members of his entourage landed at Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Airport, Katsina at about 4.30 p.m.
The Nigerian Air Force helicopter, NAF – 540, transported the president to Daura from Katsina Airport at 4.55 p.m.
Gov. Aminu Masari of Katsina State, Deputy Governor Mannir Yakubu, Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, and top government officials received the president in Katsina while members of the Daura Emirate Council welcomed him at Daura.
Buhari last visited his country home on Dec. 2, 2019, when he inaugurated construction work on the N18 billion University of Transportation, Daura.
Buhari, while performing the groundbreaking ceremony, said the newly-established institution would bring rapid development to the transport sector and generate both academic and non-academic employment opportunities for Nigerians.
