Buhari To Visit Plateau State On Saturday, 19th January
Naija News reports that the President was also in Lokoja, Kogi State yesterday, where he appealed to Nigerians not to vote for the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Plateau state Deputy Governor, Prof. Sonni Tyoden, said a large gathering is expected to receive the President at the Rwang Pam Stadium, around 1pm on Saturday.
The President is also expected to receive decampees from other political parties into the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Prof. Tyoden, who is also the Chairman of the main Planning Committee of the official flag-off of the Presidential Campaign in Plateau state said the visit would afford the president the opportunity to once again seek the people’s vote come February 16 election.
He said the president will be accompanied by the cream-de-la-cream of the party’s leadership including the leader of the party and Co-Chairman of the Presidential Campaign Council, Bola Ahmed Tinubu; the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole; Director General of the Buhari Campaign Organization, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi and a host of other party stalwarts and governors.
“As usual, we are expecting a large gathering of party faithful from all the 17 local government areas of the state. Conscious of the expectation of his coming, all other arrangements including security, before and after the grand rally are in top gear.”
“We have no fear about the capabilities of the president, we are confident that Plateau will deliver to President Muhammad Buhari and the even ton Saturday would be a huge success,” he said.
Meanwhile Naija News reports that Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react to the near collapse of President Buhari during the Lokoja campaign rally.

Please allow Buhari to go home and rest. First, he doesn't remember the date he came into office, which he said to be 19th of May 2015. Now, he almost collapses at a rally in Kogi, let this man go back to Daura and enjoy his retirement in peace. #LetBuhariGo pic.twitter.com/0xzjyzkD0h
