Ondo state declares holiday ahead of Buhari visit

Ondo Governor Arakunrin Akeredolu invited Mr Buhari to open various projects as part of festivities to mark his third year in office.

Nigeria’s Ondo state government has declared Tuesday a holiday as it hosts President Muhammadu Buhari.

The state’s communications office announced that all state workers would not have to report to work so they would have the time to welcome the president.

Ondo Governor Arakunrin Akeredolu invited Mr Buhari to open various projects as part of festivities to mark his third year in office.

He tweeted that the industrial hub the president would be opening already had six factories – one of which was a cassava-to-ethanol facility.

The president is also expected to open a flyover.

The festivities to celebrate Governor Akeredolu’s anniversary started on 21 February and are scheduled to end on 1 March, according to a programme of events shared on social media.
