Buhari was expected in Imo State to commission, among other projects, a statue of him, constructed by the Governor Rochas Okorocha government.

Onwuemeodo has now said that the visit was postponed as the president was yet to return from Saudi Arabia where he is performing this year’s holy pilgrimage.

The statement read: “We humbly wish to inform the general public and Imo people in particular that His Excellency, the president and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, has not returned from Saudi Arabia where he is at the moment with other Muslims from all parts of the world on pilgrimage.
