President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Edo State tomorrow has been cancelled as the Chief of Army Staff Annual Conference billed to hold in Benin City has been shifted to Maiduguri, Borno State.
President Buhari’s aide on New Media, Alhaji Bashir Ahmad, confirmed this development on his tweeter handle in Abuja.
He said President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to declare the Chief of Army Staff Annual Conference on November 28, 2018 at the Conference Hall in Maduguri, Borno State.
The arrangements have been completed by Edo State Government to host President Buhari tomorrow where he was billed to inaugurate the Edo-Azura Power Plant and grace the Chief of Army Staff Annual Conference.
The shifting of the Chief of Army Staff Annual Conference from Benin City to Maiduguri might not be unconnected with the killing of Nigerian soldiers at Metele, a remote village bordering Nigeria Chad.
