Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike receives Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Port Harcourt International Airport during his visit to the state to flag off the implementation of the UNEP Report
PARIS, JUNE 2, 2016: (DGW) Reports coming in from the oil-rich Rivers State say Vice President Yemi Osibanjo was met on arrival at Port Harcourt International Airport by the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike.
Osibanjo had to go to Rivers to flag off the implementation of the UNEP Report following Buhari's aborted visit to Ogoniland after threats of his possible assassination reached the State House, Abuja on Thursday.
Some militants did say they will kill President Buhari today should he by a twist of fate step his feet in Ogoniland and in what seems like succumbing to the threat the President backed down at the eleventh hour and instead dispatch the Vice President for the exercise.
Reason given for the sudden cancellation is to enable him attend to other important state matters.
Below are the photos of the Vice President , Yemi Osibanjo who was met on arrival by Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers State at the airport of Port Harcourt.
