Lagosians, indigenes and settlers, are stupefied as President Muhammadu Buhari cancelled his official two day visit, scheduled for Monday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 24, to Lagos.
While no cogent reason was given, there are speculations that the president has an ear infection, was upset with Asiwaju BOLA Ahmed Tinubu, All Progressives Congress national leader, for having a meeting with Comrade Ayuba Waba-led Nigeria Labour Congress.
With high level preparations by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and his team, many are disappointed. The Vice President YEMI Osinbajo is representing the president.
Social media platforms are agog with all sorts of postulations…

Did Buhari cancel his trip to Lagos because of scheduling conflict or ear infection? I tell you, the civil service is not what it used to be
