Governor Udom To Welcome Buhari To Akwa Ibom

Despite all political tension that has played out in the last few weeks in Akwa Ibom, Governor Udom Emmanuel, is billed to receive President Muhammadu Buhari at the Victor Attah International Airport, Uyo, today.

Buhari is visiting Akwa Ibom today, Friday, to flag off his re-election campaign.

The governor is expected to be accompanied by other state officials.

There has been political tension of late in the state between Mr Buhari’s party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Governor Emmanuel’s party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

A few days ago, during the visit of President Buhari’s wife, Aisha, to the state, there was a scuffle at the Uyo airport between Governor Emmanuel’s wife and the wife of Godswill Akpabio, a senator from the state.

The two women, including their supporters, were contesting who was the right person to receive Mrs Buhari at the airport.

Mrs Buhari was in the state to flag off her pet project called Future Assured.
