President Muhammadu Buhari with Governors of Kogi, Niger and Borno

President Muhammadu Buhari today received governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress at his Daura hometown.

The President had on Thursday left Abuja for his hometown to commiserate with bereaved family members.

Aisha Mamman, wife of the President’s elder brother and Halima Dauda, the President’s niece and younger sister to his close associate had died recently.

Mr. Buhari travelled in an helicopter, landing at the Daura helipad in company of his aides and close family members.

Among his aides were Bashir Kankiya, Chief Security Officer to the President; Lawal Kazaure, the Chief Protocol Officer to the President and Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity.

The governors have been away from their various states for the most part of this week. They were part of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum meeting in Abuja on Wednesday before participating in a meeting of the National Economic Council on Thursday.
