President Muhammadu Buhari was forced to travel to his hometown, Daura, Katsina State by road, following the poor weather condition in the country.
The President embarked on the trip from Kano State where he has been on official visit.
His Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists on Friday.
Shehu said the President, who was accompanied to Daura, by Governors Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano and Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa, was received on the border between Jigawa and Katsina States by Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina and the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Farouk.
“The condition of the weather necessitated the trip to Daura by road,” he said.
