President Muhammadu Buhari travelled to Daura, his hometown in Katsina state, by road on Thursday due to bad weather condition.

Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, said this in a statement on Friday.

He said Buhari travelled to Daura from Kano where he had just completed his two-day official visit.

“The condition of the weather necessitated the trip to Daura by road,” he said.

Shehu also said Buhari was accompanied to Daura by Abdullahi Ganduje and Abubakar Badaru, governors of Kano and Jigawa respectively.

At Katsina, he was received by Aminu Masari, governor of the state, as well as Umar Farouk, emir of Daura.

Prior to his travel, the president was said to have commissioned two newly-established agro-based industries in Kano.

The industries, according to Shehu, include a 1,200 tonnes capacity solvent extraction plant of Gerawa Oil Mills Limited as well as the Fullmark Rice Mills.

Buhari was quoted to have said the current changes to trade and investment policies by his administration “will help the nation to diversify the economy, attract more foreign investments and speed up the country’s industrialisation”
