President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived his hometown Daura for a four-day official visit, the presidency announced on Friday.
In the course of his stay in Daura, he is expected to participate in the APC membership registration and revalidation exercise, presidential spokesperson Garba Shehu said in a statement.
He said the President considers this exercise as a very important one for the nation’s democracy and its yearning for good leadership as a requirement of the process of nation building.
In a broadcast last week, President Buhari urged “all good people,” not only to speak but to rise up and “get involved in the task of improving their society,” adding that “for most citizens, their greatest weapon is their vote. Register now for your party and register when the time comes for elections.”
Buhari is expected to return to Abuja on Tuesday.
