Katsina is buzzing with anticipation of Buhari’s homecoming, despite the widespread disapproval of his administration in Nigeria.

Several groups in Daura, and Daura in particular, are preparing big parties to celebrate his return to the country.

The President was raised by his mother after his father’s unexpected death on December 17, 1942, when he was only four years old.

He joined the military in 1961, rose to the presidency in 1983, and was deposed the following year.

It took 32 years, but in March 2015, the former military ruler-turned-democrat who ran on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, defeated the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan and was elected President.

Katsina State, and the city of Daura in particular, have seen significant infrastructure improvements since Buhari’s election as President.
