JUST IN: Buhari arrives Kano, visits emir’s palace


President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, arrived in Kano for the 58th Anniversary of the Nigerian Air Force.

The programme tagged NAF Day Celebration 2022 billed to hold between May 19 and 21 was postponed to honour the lives of nine people killed by an explosion in the state.

The president, who is the Special Guest of Honour at the event, visited the palace of the Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado-Bayero, for a courtesy visit.

At the emir’s palace, Mr Buhari was seen alongside Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, while the emir welcomed them into the palace.
