(Breaking) Buhari Arrives Abakiliki, Fails to Inspect Guard of Honour

Reports coming in from the South-East have indicated that President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital, where he was received by some governors of the zone.

One take away so far from the visit is the failure of President Buhari to inspect the Guard of Honor mounted for him by men of the Nkwoegu Military Cantonment of the Nigerian Army, Abakiliki.

It is not yet clear why the President failed to inspect the guard of honor, however, some reports said that it was in an effort to save time for some other engagements that made the President to skip the inspection while others pointed to security reasons.

Recall that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) yesterday warned President Buhari not to visit the South-East where they said he enjoyed very little or no support due to the marginalization of the the zone by his government and the killing of innocent youths by the Nigerian army for carrying out a peaceful protest.
