President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to pay a one-day working visit to Sokoto State on Saturday, according to the Vanguard.
The Spokesman of Gov. Aminu Tambuwal, Imam Imam, in Sokoto on Frida, said that the President would be in the state to inspect and inaugurate some developmental projects.
Imam said that, among the projects earmarked for inauguration by the president is the 500-housing estate at Kalambaina-Sokoto. The project was initiated by former Governor Aliyu Wamakko and completed by Tambuwal. The houses will be sold to civil servants in the state, to further reduce housing deficit in the state.
Imam also said President Buhari would use the opportunity of the visit to witness the 3000-horses Durban organised as part of the 10th Year Anniversay of the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III. The events marking the historic anniversary have been going on smoothly since Nov. 2.
"The state government is appreciative of the laudable support and cooperation of the generality of the people of the state. ”
"We are however imploring them to sustain the tempo, as well as intensify their fervent prayers for peace, unity and socioeconomic prosperity of Nigeria,” Imam, added.
