You may recall that President Muhammadu Buhari recently visited Imo State to commission some infrastructural projects in the State. During his visit to Imo State, the President was received by stakeholders and prominent groups in the South-East region. Presidential aide, Femi Adesina, has since responded to comments trailing the visit.

As for people saying the President was not welcomed in the South-East, who dare say that an elected President is not welcomed in any part of the country that elected him? Did they forget that the President fought for the unity of Nigeria?"See the source image

Responding further, Adesina added, "The President is the Ogbuagu 1 of Aba in the South-East. Ogbuagu means the 'Loin Killer'. How can you tell a chief not to visit a part of an area where he is a local chief? President Buhari is a traditional Chief in Aba, Ebonyi and Enugu. How then can anyone say the President can not come to a region where he holds titles? He is an elected President, and he was not appointed."
