President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly cancelled his scheduled visit to his hometown, Daura in Katsina State.

Buhari shelved the visit over the planned protest across the country in commemoration of the first anniversary of the #EndSARS protest.

The President was expected to depart Abuja this weekend for Daura for a ‘short rest’.

According to a presidential source, for a younger and healthier leader who is used to hard physical and mental work, such a hectic schedule may not be too taxing.

However, considering Buhari’s age and health, the source said he probably found the recent activities taxing enough to require some rest.

“He’s departing for Daura this weekend for home rest. He just wants to go and rest. He will return next week,” a presidential source had told SaharaReporters on Wednesday.

However, sources on Thursday said the trip has been cancelled over the planned #EndSARS memorial protests on October 20, 2021.

“The earlier trip to Daura has been stepped down over threats of the resurgence of #EndSARS memorial uprising,” one of the sources told SaharaReporters.

“The FEAR of #EndSARSProtest is the beginning of WISDOM. Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled his trip to Daura where he was going to rest! But now because of #Endsars for next week, man is scared! No Rest for the wicked! #RevolutionNow #EndSARS #buharimustgo,” human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore wrote on Twitter.

Buhari had in the past claimed last year’s #EndSARS protest against police brutality was aimed at removing him from office.
