Watch How Residents Treated President Buhari In Imo (Video)
It is no longer news of the outcome of yesterday’s visit to Imo by Nigeria President, Mohammadu Buhari. The occasion was recorded successfully as the majority of the political and traditional leaders graced the event.
The president commissioned several accomplished projects, according to reports, and later proceeded to flag off new developmental projects notably gutter tunnel, and road construction.
However, notable displays and entertainment, ranging from cultural dance to wrestling were not witnessed.
Unlike the Northern counterpart, the people of Imo state, mainly the youths were not seen on the streets welcoming the President rather some few aged parents and ‘hired crowd’, said Saharareporters, filled up the event.
Major streets, BBC Pidgin reported were scanty both expressways, Market places, plazas, motorists, and general business activities were suspended.
#Scannews24 understands that the leadership of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had given an order to residents in Imo and Southeast to stay at home during the visit.
Based on a statement by the Head of Directorate, Chika Edoziem, Buhari’s tour to Imo is not welcomed as it gives President Buhari a chance to urinate on graves of innocent youths killed by soldiers and security operatives under Governor Hope Uzodinma’s watch.
The state recorded appropriately 90 percent compliance to the sit-at-home exercise imposed by IPOB. Video
