President Muhammadu Buhari has canceled his two days visit to Lagos to commission projects and interact with the state executives.

According to a report by The Cable, Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity said the president took the decision to prepare himself ahead of Ramadan.

Shehu further explained that Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo will represent the president as he's currently faced with scheduling difficulties.

In the words of Garba Shehu, “The president is faced with scheduling difficulties and that is the reason for the postponement of the visit. He needs more time for Lagos and for Edo which had earlier been stepped down.

Continuing, he said, 'As a result of this, the visit has been scaled down and he is being represented by His Excellency the Vice-President, who is going to Lagos to commission a few projects, leaving the rest for  Mr. President. The President will undertake these visits after the Ramadan.'

Buhari’s visit would have been the first official trip of a sitting president in 14 years,after ex- President Olusegun Obasanjo visited in November 2002.
