Buhari arrives Lagos to begin a two-day state visit

Buhari arrives Lagos to begin a two-day state visit

President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday arrived  at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, to begin a two-day visit to the state, amidst tight security.

The President’s plane landed at about 9.30a.m. at the Presidential Wing of the airport.

Buhari was welcomed by Lagos Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode and top officers of the various security outfits at the airport, including the Nigeria Police, Nigerian Air Force, Nigerian Immigration Service, Nigerian Customs Service and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.

He inspected a ceremonial guard of honour at the Presidential Wing before proceeding to the Ikeja Bus Terminus for the inauguration.

The President returned to the airport later and proceeded to Lagos Island via a chopper to attend a colloquium in honour of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.

Security operatives immediately re-opened access to the general aviation terminal of the airport which was earlier barricaded, shortly after the departure of the President for the colloquium.

Buhari received a rousing welcome from some Nigerians who lined up on the airport road to catch a glimpse of him.

The crowd chanted “Sai Baba ”, as the President’s motorcade made its way back to the airport after the inauguration of the bus terminal.
