President Muhammadu Buhari has on Wednesday arrived Katsina State, en route Daura, his hometown for the Eid-el-Kabir sallah celebration.
Buhari landed in the Nigerian Air Force Presidential jet 5N-FGT at about 4pm at the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua international airport in Katsina state.
The state Governor, Aminu Bello Masari, alongside other top government officials, Emirs of Katsina, Dr. Abdulmumini Kabir Usman and his counterpart from Daura, Alhaji Umar Faruq, were on hand to receive the President at the airport.
After airport ceremonies, President Buhari proceeded in a helicopter to Daura, his hometown, where he is expected to spend the Sallah break.
The President’s arrival for the Sallah festivity represents the first since his arrival from the medical vacation in the United Kingdom and means the traditional sallah homage to the President in Abuja will not hold this Friday.
Recall that the federal government earlier declared Friday, 1st September and Monday, 4th September as public holidays to commemorate the sallah celebrations.
