President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled his planned five-day trip to his home town,Daura as a mark of respect for victims of Boko Haram attacks across the battlefields in the Northeast zone of the country.
The President had planned to stay in Daura, Katsina State from November 27 to December 2.
The president had earlier cancelled his official trip to Benin City, Edo where he was initially billed to inaugurate the Edo-Azura Power Plant and grace the Chief of Army Staff Annual Conference.
The advanced teams of the president, who left Abuja for Katsina and Benin on Sunday, had been asked to return.
The cancellation of the trips would also enable the president to continue his ongoing meetings and consultations with relevant security and intelligence community aimed at addressing the nation’s security challenges.
However, the president is expected to declare open the Chief of Army Staff Annual Conference, which was moved from Benin City to Maiduguri, Borno, on November 28 at the Government House Conference Hall.
