The vice president Yemi Osinbajo is currently inaugurating some projects in Lagos state, on behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari who canceled his official visit on Sunday, May 22, due to an “ear infection”.
The president was expected to be in Lagos for a two day working visit on Monday May 23 and Tuesday, May 24.
Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant, media and publicity to the president confirmed that President Buhari will no longer be available for the two-day visit but will be represented by the vice president.
Lagos was already in full preparatory mood to welcome the number one citizen to the economic capital of the country with billboards and posters. The presidential wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport was wearing a new look.
Some of the projects to be inaugurated include the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency Rescue Unit (LASEMA) in Cappa, Oshodi; the newly constructed Ago Palace Way in Okota, Isolo and the inauguration of security equipment and vehicles donated by the Ambode administration.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state has said the two-day working visit will provide a platform for the party leadership and Lagosians to engage and interact with the President.
A statement yesterday in Lagos by its Publicity Secretary, Joe Igbokwe, said: “The historic visit will provide an opportunity for the President to get first class knowledge of the massive transformation going on in Lagos.
