Here’s why Buhari cancelled his proposed visit to Zamfara State

President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled his proposed visit to Zamfara State. The President was scheduled to travel to the northwest state on Thursday for a one-day official visit to condole with the government and people of the state over the recent killing of 58 persons in Anka and Bukkuyum local government areas.

The state governor, Bello Matawalle, said Buhari was billed to visit Zamfara State after his engagement in Sokoto State but unfortunately, the poor weather condition will not allow him to proceed to the state.

But the President, however, visited Sokoto State to commission a cement plant by manufacturing company, BUA Group.

Hosted by Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal, President Buhari at the event inaugurated the three million metric tonnes per annum plant and 48 megawatts power plant.

President Buhari lauded the company for believing in Nigeria and being the largest employer of labour in the northwest region of the country. He also expressed delight that the Federal Government policies on economic diversification, job creation, and creating an enabling environment for businesses to thrive are working.

He pledged that his administration would continue to support serious investors to set up businesses that will take advantage of huge reserves of resources in different parts of the country.

He recounted that in 1985 as the then Head of State, he was at the same location to commission the 2nd line of the facility.
