He was received at the Yola International Airport by Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Fintri; his Chief of Staff, Prof Maxwell Gidado; the Minister of the FCT, Mohammed Bello; heads of security agencies in the state and members of the State Executive Council.
Buhari is expected to first pay a visit the palace of the Lamido of Adamawa, Mohammadu Aliu Barkin, before visiting the late Joda’s family.
