President Muhammadu Buhari, Wednesday, August 30, 2017, arrived Daura, Katsina State to celebrate Eid El Kabir.
On hand to receive him back to his place of birth were Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari, Emir of Katsina, HRH Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabir Usman, Emir of Daura, H.R.H. Alhaji Umar Faruk Umar, the General Officer Commanding, GOC, 1 Division Nigerian Army, Major General Adeniyi Oyebade and many other very important dignitaries.
As he arrived his country home in Daura, President Buhari opted to walk through the street to his house from the helipad as an overwhelming crowd surged to welcome him.
The President, who was received at the helipad by the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Faruk Umar Faruk, abandoned the motorcade as a large number of people had already gathered around the helipad, snaking all the way to his house.
The elated crowd cheered as the President walked home, screaming “baba ya da wo, baba oyoyo”, meaning “baba is back, welcome home”.
President Buhari was earlier received at the airport in Katsina by the Governor of Katsina State, Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari, and the Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabir Usman, before he was airlifted with a chopper to Daura.
The President will be spending time with his family during the Eid-el-Kabir.
