Osinbajo's flight to Ondo forced to return after bad weather forecast midair

 Acting President Yemi Osinbajo's, flight on Friday to Ondo state was forced to return to Abuja after bad weather, poor visibility forecast midair.

 

Prof. Osinbajo was already air-borne this morning when weather reports indicated dusty haze and very poor visibility at the Akure Airport and other alternative airports nearby.

The trip had been set-up in continuation of his tour of the oil-producing communities which earlier took the Acting President  to Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers and Imo States.

The presidential jet therefore had to return to Abuja following which the weather condition was closely monitored until about 2:30pm, when it became abundantly clear that the situation would not change in time for the Acting President to achieve the purposes of the visit. The visit has therefore been  rescheduled for Monday, the 20th of February, 2017.

Spokesperson to the Acting President, Laolu Akande in a statement said the Presidency has extended apologies to the State Governor, the Governor-elect, traditional rulers and the generality of the people of Ondo State who had been awaiting the Acting President's visit.
