President Muhammadu Buhari scheduled one-day trip to Ogoniland, Rivers state to flag off the Niger Delta clean up has been canceled.

A Presidential source told newsmen that President Buhari will be represented by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

The cancellation is as a result of the security threats to the President from dreaded militant group, Niger Delta Avengers who had threatened to kill the President should he step foot in the Niger Delta region.

The president had blamed an ear infection for canceling the visit to Lagos where he was scheduled to commission some projects finished by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode two weeks ago.

It is unclear if the President plans to attend the ECOWAS meeting scheduled to discuss issues of regional security and economic development in Dakar tomorrow.
