If Buhari is to be present at the funeral, proper security arrangements need to be in place and that requires at least a week or more of good security plans. No president attend any engagement without a prearranged security for safety reasons. It is not a day work

There is no excuse but his normal sidon look attitude ... to arrange security for him does not take more than 24 hours because all security and intelligence structures are in place and Sokoto is not a troubled state. ( I was in the system for 25yrs ) it's unfortunate and a big  insult to our democracy and intelligence which APC always take for granted .
