President Muhammadu Buhari will travel to Adamawa State in North-East Nigeria on Friday.
The purpose of the visit is to express condolences to the state government and people on the death of late Ahmed Joda, one of Adamawa’s prominent sons.
Before President Buhari took office in 2015, Joda was the Chairman of the President’s transition team.
The 91-year-old statesman passed away on August 13th.
President Buhari will then go from Yola to Kano to attend his son Yusuf Buhari’s wedding fatiha.
After the wedding, he will return to Abuja.
On Monday, a high-powered delegation led by the Secretary to the Federation’s Government, Boss Mustapha, paid a visit to Joda’s family to express their condolences.
