President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter Fatima Buhari on Monday paid unscheduled visit to the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede Owerri, Imo State.
Miss Buhari’s visit took the management, staff and students of the school unawares as the Rector, Engr. Michael Arimanwa, hurriedly called out some management staff to welcome the visitor and her entourage.
Though the reason for her visit was not immediately known, it was gathered she visited some of the facilities of the institution, including the medical centre where she interacted with some patients who, it was learnt, she assisted to pay off their medical bills.
It was learnt that she also visited the School of Engineering where she inspected some fabrications made by the students and other facilities in the mechanical workshop.
It was learnt that this was not the first time she had visited the school.
She visited the institution also last year during the convocation ceremony.
The institution’s Public Relations Officer, Ever Nwosu, who confirmed the visit said the President’s daughter has been in love with the institution.
“She loves our institution. She visited our school but did not make any pronouncement, she asked certain questions in some areas of interest,” he said.
