President Muhammadu Buhari received a warm reception at the Akanu Ibiam International airport in Enugu on Tuesday.
At least four governors and some traditional rulers welcomed the president during his first visit to the region since he was elected in 2015.
The governors at the airport were Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Rochas Okorocha (Imo), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Dave Umahi (Ebonyi).
From Enugu, the president headed to Ebonyi.
