The presidency has debunked the report that the President’s visit to Ogoni land was cancelled, in a text message , the Senior Special Assistance on media,Femi Adesina, said President Muhammadu Buhari will be represented by his vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
Yesterday, news filtered in that a representative of Niger Delta Avengers called in to a radio biafra program threatening to assassinate the president should he visit Ogoni land.
The visit to Ogoni land is to flag off the cleansing of the oil rich region which many believes will bring peace and sense of belonging to the region.
The vice President will however represent the president and the flag-off of of Ogoni cleansing will indeed take place albeit without the physical presence of President Muhammadu Buhari.
This is not the first time the President’s itinerary was nixed, an earlier scheduled visit to Lagos was cancelled with reports saying it is as a result of the president’s ear infection.
