President Muhammadu Buhari has postponed his much publicized two-day state visit to Lagos. The visit which would have seen the President inaugurating a number of projects would have started on Monday and ended on Tuesday. The President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said President Buhari will now be represented by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.
He attributed the postponement to what he called “scheduling difficulties.” Shehu said the President needed more time for the Lagos trip as well as a similar one to Edo State which had earlier been stepped down. Shehu said the president will still embark on the visit after Ramadan, which is due to start on the sixth of June and will not end until the fifth of July, 2016.
