Why Buhari Postponed Lagos Visit – Presidency by Iamlordgee(m): 8:39pm On May 22, 2016
The Presidency has attributed the postponement of President Muhammdu Buhari’s planned two-day state visit to Lagos to what it called “scheduling difficulties.”

The President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, explained this to journalists on Sunday.

Shehu said Buhari needed more time for the Lagos trip as well as a similar one to Edo State which had earlier been stepped down.

He said the President would embark on the trips after Ramadan.

The presidential spokesman said, “The President is faced with scheduling difficulties and that is the reason for the postponement of the Visit.

“He needs more time for Lagos and for Edo which had earlier been stepped down.

“As a result of this, the visit has been scaled down and he is being represented by His Excellency the Vice-President, who is going to Lagos to commission a few projects, leaving the rest for Mr. President.

“The President will undertake these visits after the Ramadan.”

The spokesman of the Vice-President, Laolu Akande, also on Sunday issued a two-paragraph statement on the issue.

The statement read, “President Muhammadu Buhari will be represented in Lagos State tomorrow (Monday) on an official visit by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN.

“On behalf of the President, Prof. Osinbajo would commission a number of projects in the state as part of the visit.”

Dear Nairaland, keep misinforming the public. It doesn't take anything to await an official statement from the presidency before releasing hear-says to the public.

Walahi talahi if I must conpess, it is not easy to gubern a kuontri like Naijeria because our fifu are criminals and berry kwarupt, no wunder my preind, the frime minister of UK said we are pantasticaly kwarupt. And I totally agree with him though I don't agree with UK Daily Mail newsfafer that said the pormer gubernor of Livers State who is now my minister por transfort is pantasticaly kwarupt. The money Amaechi injected into my camfein was gotten prom his savings.

Waka shege damburuba to Tyrano Tsunami and his gang por Pesvook and Twitter that are saying that I am not paiting kwaruption. If I catch them eh, sorry would be their middle name.

Boko Haram terrorists are still bombing though, but they have been depeated tekinicaly because we have granted them amnesty. Any Boko Haram you see still bombing today are not Nijerians but Chadians. If you are prom the North and you have any bruder that looks like a Boko Haram member, just bring him and we will grant him amnesty.

Flease you fifu should stop accusing Pulani herdsmen of killings because those fifu are not Pulani fifu but Libyans. Pulani fifu are feacepul fifu.

Chibok Girls! Yoowaa, this is my highest achievement por the fast one year in oppice. We have rescued two of the Chibok girls that were kidnapped in their hotels. Though there is confroversy surrounding their rescue because the pest girl has so many conplicting names and cannot speak English. And madam Oby Ezekwesili of BBOG has said that the second girl's name is not pound on the oliginal list. I don't know if she is saying that because I repused to give her pedral appointment. But whether they are Chibok girls or not, the most imfortant thing is that there was a rescue. Shikena!

Lung live the pedral guberment of Naijeria.

We knew the embarrassment of the truth (ear infection) would make them come out with some jargon grammar to explain a failure of planning and protocol. This government was clearly not prepared for the task at hand, as it may cost us 2 painful years for them to learn on the job

Isn't this a waste of state resources in these austere times? So Vp would commission some, then Buhari would come later and commission the rest. Ehen? Is that the new way of sharing the money? Think of how much of tax payers money would be splashed to host the top two citizens of Nigeria.
PS : The problem we have is one of insincerity and trying to appear right all the time. The ear infection would actually have been a better sell, for bleeps sake Mr President is human , he is old and as such is susceptible to infections (even if he lives in Buckingham Palace). There is nothing wrong in cancelling or rescheduling a trip due to natural causes. His advisers need to have a word with themselves

It's actually okay if it's because of ear pain.

As I've heard, ear pain can be like tooth ache, which takes someone somewhere between life and death.
