Chants of “Baba Oyo-yo! Baba oyoyo!”, rend the air as President Muhammadu Buhari landed in Maiduguri, Borno State capital, on Thursday morning.

Buhari is in the state to commission some projects executed by the Governor Babagana Zulum administration.

The presidential jet landed at the Nigerian Air Force wing of the Maiduguri International Airport at 9:30am.

The president was received by Prof Zulum, members of national and state houses of assemblies, service chiefs alongside top government officials.

According to the itinerary of the president as obtained by our correspondent, he is expected to visit the Shehu of Borno’s palace, address frontline troops and as well commission some projects within the state capital.

The President will later proceed to Maimalari cantonment to visit wounded soldiers.

The president has commissioned projects at Government Technical Secondary School, Njimtilo, and Borno State University.

Motorists are experiencing difficulties as most of the roads within Maiduguri Metropolitan City are partially closed.
