SAHARANEWS – President Muhammadu Buhari who was scheduled to visit Akwa Ibom State on Monday, March 4 (today) has made a shocking u-turn, leaving Godswill Akpabio and Nsima Ekere hanging hopelessly.
The duo had hoped on the president’s visit to revive their comatose Guber campaign which went underground after last Saturday’s knock out defeat the party suffered on the hand of the ruling PDP.
SaharaNews learnt that Buhari delegated his vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo to represent him at the town hall meeting.
The sudden change was disclosed by presidential liaison, Senator Ita Enang is a statement made available to journalists.
