For those who remember, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan paid a visit to Obafemi Awolowo University in the first week of December, 2014 when he had a meeting with Yoruba elders as part of moves to garner votes towards the forthcoming elections.


Meanwhile, It was also widely reported in the media, that the President was booed (and stoned) by disgruntled students of the University community, an allegation which was denied by the University authority.

Today however, the Nigerian Air Force, NAF 280 chopper which was used in conveying the President off the University campus was sited again as it landed on the University’s football pitch, the same place where it landed about three months ago. The pilots and crew of the chopper alighted and were seen discussing with members of OAU security team which included the deputy Chairman of the Security Committee, Prof Sola Ajayi, the Chief Security officer, Dr Paul Ogidi and other officers.

After about an hour of landing and discussion, at about 3:30pm-4:30pm, crews of the NAF 280 boarded and took off in the chopper. What is however surprising is that for a couple of minutes after takeoff, the chopper kept hovering over the University campus.

This is a norm with security agents making an aerial surveillance of a place before the arrival of National personalities to ensure maximum security.

This however raised questions of whether the President or another dignitary would be on a return visit to Ile-Ife as elections draw even more closer.
