President Buhari visits Yobe



President Muhammadu Buhari is set to be in Yobe State for a two-day working visit.

Yusuf Ali, the state governor's senior special assistant on digital and strategic communications disclosed this on Sunday in a press statement.

'The Government House Damaturu, the seat of power wears new look as Yobe State prepares to host President Muhammadu Buhari on a two-day working visit Tuesday,' Yusuf Ali said.

He said the president is expected to commission landmark projects executed by Mai Mala Buni, Governor of Yobe.

The projects to be commissioned are Damaturu International Cargo Airport, markets, schools, housing estates and Nigeria's largest maternal and child health complex.

A civil servant source who is working with the government said workers were given two-day public holiday to allow them give the president a rousing welcome during his visit.

Mr. Buni called on residents of the state to come out en masse to welcome the president as he commissions the projects.

'Governor Buni said the visit is symbolic as well as it's historic for Yobe to host the President.

'As it's known for its hospitality world over, Yobe is fully prepared to host Mr. President. All necessary arrangements has been put in place,' the statement added.
