Breaking: Buhari returns to Daura one month after

President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to Daura, his town in Katsina state ahead of nationwide registration and revalidation exercise by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He was welcomed on arrival at the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua International Airport, Katsina , by the Governor Aminu Bello Masari, the Deputy Governor, the Speaker of the State House of Assembly and the Chief Judge.

In Daura, the Emir, Alhaji Faruk Umar Faruk, led District Heads and traditional title holders to receive the president at the helipad.

Buhari had travelled to Daura on December 11, 2020.

However, a statement by the Presidency on Friday said, “In the course of his stay in Daura this time, he is expected to, among other engagements, participate in the All Progressives Party (APC) membership registration and revalidation exercise.

“The president considers this exercise as a very important one for the nation’s democracy and its yearning for good leadership as a requirement of the process of nation building, his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Mr Garba Shehu, said in a statement in Abuja.”

In a broadcast last week, the president urged “all good people,” not only to speak but to rise up and “get involved in the task of improving their society,” adding that “for most citizens, their greatest weapon is their vote. Register now for your Party and register when the time comes for elections.”

The president is expected to return to the nation’s capital on Tuesday.
