AHMED MARI, Maiduguri
The coaster bus conveying the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, his host, Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State and their aides broke down during his one-day visit to Maiduguri where he commissioned many projects executed by the outgoing government of Governor Shettima.
The white coaster bus conveying Governor Shettima and his guest, Vice President Osinbajo broke down at the Gaji Galtimari Housing Estate, Maiduguri, during the commissioning of the estate, where he was also scheduled to commission the nearby Nur Alkali Model School.
But he couldn’t do so as when they brought a new bus, the convoy drove straight to the Shehu’s palace
At the time the bus broke down, the Vice President was not inside the vehicle, as he was out of the vehicle commissioning the estate. On returning, the Vice President saw the security operatives pushing the bus.
They had to bring another vehicle for the Vice President before they brought another College coaster bus to replace the overheated vehicle of the Vice President.
Also during visit, the Operatives of the Department of Security Service (DSS) tried to prevent Journalists from gaining entrance into the Shehu’s Palace as they threatened to deal with one of female reporters of one of the prominent National Television stations.
It took the intervention of the Vice President and Governor Shettima to call the security operatives to order before they allowed journalists access to the palace.
