The planned visit of acting President Yemi Osinbajo to Akure, the Ondo State capital, never happened due to an unforeseen circumstance.
It was gathered that the acting president’s plane had hovered over Akure airspace for several minutes but could not land. According to the Sun, the cause was believed to be as a result of bad weather.
It was also gathered that the acting president communicated the cancellation to Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State after waiting for several hours at the Presidential lounge, in Abuja, with the bad weather not abating.
Consequently, the visit has been postponed till Monday, February 20.
Acting President Prof Yemi Osinbajo is expected to commission the Ondo State international events and culture centre – The Dome, the Mega School at Ijapo estate Akure, and also hold a town hall meeting in the state.
