Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has arrived Ogoniland, in Rivers State, to represent President Muhammadu Buhari, who, at the last hour cancelled his scheduled trip to the troubled Niger Delta region.
President Buhari had planned a one-day visit to Ogoni land, Rivers State, Nigeria for the flag-off of the Ogoni land clean up exercise slated for Thursday.
Though the Presidency has given no reason for the cancellation, there are reports however that the cancellation due to security treat in the volatile region. it would be recalled that few days ago, the Niger Delta Avenger had issued a warning to the President to stay away from the region or come at the risk of his life.
If the recent bombing of major Petrol and gas pipelines in region was anything to go by, it appears the Nigeria military is yet to find a way round the nefarious activities of the newly formed dreaded militant group, hence the cancellation of President Buhari’s visit.
