The Bauchi State government has declared Thursday, April 26, as a public holiday to welcome President Muhammed Buhari to the state.

The state governor, Mr Muhammed Abubakar, announced this on Wednesday while addressing a press conference at the Government House in Bauchi.

He noted that the President appreciated the overwhelming support he received from the people of the state who voted for him in 2015.

According to Governor Abubakar, “The visit of Mr President will again afford us the opportunity to demonstrate our love and support for him.”

“Similarly, Mr President always regards Bauchi as a second home. I, therefore, want to use this opportunity to appeal to all and sundry to come out en masse to welcome the President,” he added.

The governor urged the residents to remain law-abiding, as the people of Bauchi are known for their peaceful disposition and respect for constituted authority.

President Buhari is expected to pay a two-day working visit to the state on Thursday and Friday. This is his third scheduled visit to the state after two failed attempts since assuming office.

During the visit, he would inaugurate the Air Force Referral Hospital in Bauchi, and flag-off the distribution of farming implements to farmers in the state.

The President is also expected to inaugurate some road projects embarked upon by the Governor Abubakar’s administration. (Channels TV)
