The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has arrived in his hometown of Daura, Katsina State, where he will cast his vote on Saturday, February 25, 2023, the Presidential Election day.

A statement signed on Thursday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, revealed that the Leonardo AW139 helicopter conveying Buhari from the Katsina Airport touched down in Daura at 05:25pm, after which he was conveyed home by a retinue of DSS officials.

The statement was titled ‘President Buhari arrives Katsina for presidential elections.’

Buhari who has been on the ballot in five consecutive election cycles will, for the first time in two decades (2003- 2023), join the electorate to vote for another candidate asides from himself.

Shehu revealed that Buhari will cast his vote at a polling unit close to his country home in Daura, alongside his wife, Aisha Buhari and other family members.

Also voting in Daura will be members of his entourage, including security, protocol and other State House staff.

Upon arrival, the President was received by the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari and the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ahmed Abubakar.

Rihanna to perform ‘Black Panther’ song at Oscars

Pop superstar Rihanna would perform at the Oscars next month, organisers said on Thursday, just weeks after her long-awaited and visibly pregnant return at the Super Bowl.

The Barbados-born singer will perform her Academy Award-nominated song “Lift Me Up” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” at the film industry’s top awards show in Hollywood.

The song is competing with the likes of Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hand” from “Top Gun: Maverick,” and the current frontrunner “Naatu Naatu” from Indian crowd-pleaser “RRR.”

Rihanna, 35, had not performed a live show in seven years before bringing a career-spanning medley of hits to the NFL flagship halftime show earlier this month.

She has instead concentrated on the successful makeup, lingerie and high-fashion brands that have helped make her a billionaire as well as raising her first child, a son, who was born in May.

Her new baby bump dominated the conversation at the Super Bowl, with representatives for the singer confirming soon after the show that Rihanna is pregnant with her second child.

But fans hoping for a glimpse of the album she’s been teasing for years were left disappointed.
