The President’s senior special assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu said the trip was cancelled due to scheduling difficulties .

The Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, had in a statement on Saturday said Buhari would inaugurate some landmark projects executed by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode during his visit.

Ayorinde said  Buhari’s official visit “is the first time in about 15 years that a sitting president will be visiting the state on a working visit,” describing it as a testimony to the landmark achievements in the last one year of Ambode as well as the good working relationship between Lagos State and the Federal Government.

However, the Presidential spokeman said Buhari would be represented by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.

Shehu said, “the President is faced with scheduling difficulties and that is the reason for the postponement of the visit.

“He needs more time for Lagos and for Edo which had earlier been stepped down.

“As a result of this, the visit has been scaled down and he is being represented by His Excellency the Vice-President, who is going to Lagos to commission a few projects, leaving the rest for  Mr. President.

“The President will undertake these visits after the Ramadan.”
