However, tomorrow President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) will not be in Jakarta.

The Seventh President of the Republic of Indonesia has left for Yogyakarta on Wednesday (7/10) afternoon. Furthermore, Jokowi will continue his trip to Solo.

According to the Head of the Presidential Secretariat Heru Budi Hartono, during the day, Jokowi’s agenda at the Bogor Palace has included holding virtual meetings.

“Only in the afternoon, the President flew to Jogja, to then continue the journey via land to Solo,” said Heru.

Heru further explained that President Jokowi’s agenda for Solo was to make a pilgrimage to the grave of his mother, (late) Sudjiatmi Notomihardjo in Karanganyar.

“In the evening from Solo, the President returned to Jogja to stay overnight at the Presidential Palace, Gedung Agung,” said Heru.

President Jokowi’s agenda tomorrow is to make a working visit to Palangka Raya in Central Kalimantan. In Palangka Raya, Jokowi will review the National Food Granary program.

However, Heru emphasized that President Jokowi’s working visit to Palangka Raya had nothing to do with the plans of student elements and rushed to hold an action in front of the State Palace. Heru argued that the agenda had been in place for a long time.

“So there is absolutely nothing to do with tomorrow’s action. The President is concern to national food security, because like the FAO warning there is a risk of food scarcity due to a pandemic. So the president wants to directly review the progress food estate this, “explained Heru.(tan / jpnn)
