On arrival, President Buhari was received by Governor Aminu Bello Masari, his deputy, Mannir Yakubu, senior government officials and the heads of security agencies in the state.

President Buhari was also welcomed by the Emir of Daura, Umar Faruk Umar, who led the members of the Emirate Council and a parade of colourful horse riders and courtiers.
