President Muhammadu Buhari's hometown of Daura, Katsina state has witnessed noticeable transformation since the president assumed office in 2015.
The town has reportedly metamorphosed into a commercial town that now boasts of the presence of projects from both the federal and state governments including the presence of privately-owned commercial ventures
The transformation in the town started to manifest shortly after Buhari assumed office in 2015 as it transformed from a sleepy and peaceful town whose major occupations of the majority of residents are farming, trading, and livestock husbandry, to another commercial hub in Katsina state.
Punch Newspaper reports that inside the present-day Daura are buildings and structures which boast modern-day architectural designs. The town also has a good road network and drainage system which makes the town attractive.
