Four days to the Governorship and House of Assembly elections in Nigeria, the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, is visiting Owerri, the Imo State capital, today.

Buhari is in Owerri to consolidate the chances of the state governor, Rochas Okorocha, who is giving the Imo governorship a second shot under the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The visit will also be used to garner support for the party’s House of Assembly candidates.

Meanwhile, there is heavy military presence in Owerri, as Department of State Service (DSS), soldiers, National Security and Civil Defence (NSCDC) and other security operatives are deployed at strategic locations from the airport to the town.
