Buhari’s change of plan is obviously due to the sacking of David Lyon, Governor-Elect of All Progressives Congress,APC by the Supreme Court in a stunning judgement on Thursday.

President Buhari was also scheduled to witness the inauguration of an APC government after more than 20 years of PDP administration, since 1999.
