Buhari returns to Nigeria early due to unrest in Zamfara, Kaduna

President Muhammadu Buhari returned to Abuja on Tuesday night, a day ahead of when he had been scheduled to return.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) has reported that Buhari had initially been scheduled to return to Abuja from Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Wednesday at about 1.30a.m.

The presidential aircraft carrying the president, his aides and members of his entourage landed at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja at about 10.45p.m on Tuesday night.

NAN has also reported that the president’s decision to cut short his official engagements in Dubai is not unconnected with security developments in Zamfara, Kaduna and other parts of the country.

The president had departed Abuja for Amman on April 4th to honor an invitation by King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein of Jordan to participate in the World Economic Forum (WEF).

He delivered an address at the opening of the plenary alongside King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein and United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres.

The President, who on Sunday moved to Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), participated in the ninth edition of the Annual Investment Meeting.

While in Dubai, President Buhari also held bilateral talks and met with different groups of investors at the sidelines of the Annual Investment Meeting.
