Some Nigerians Have Planned a Protest March Over Buhari’s Prolonged Stay in London
It is becoming worrisome that President Buhari has continued to remain in London for medical treatment despite all assurance that all was well with the president. There were even speculations in the last couple of weeks that the president would be returning to Nigeria and to his duties. Nigerians have waited in vain for the fulfilment of such promises, but all to no avail. As President Muhammadu Buhari however spends 87 days on medical vacation to London, some Nigerians have vowed to stage a protest at the Nigerian House in London come Monday, August 7.
The seat-out protest is billed for 11am and signed by one Chidi Cali.
In a Facebook post sharing the information, Dr. Uwakwe-mangse Hanna, claimed, “Buhari and his handlers want Nigerians to believe that he has returned to Nigeria, while the integrity challenged President is still in UK enjoying the comfort and security he denied millions back home.”
Some of the organizers also said, “Nigeria must not continue being run by auto pilot. Buhari Must Resume Work Or Resign!!!! President Buhari has been absent from work for 342 days (including 32 days – bed rest) out of his 796 days in office. This is not acceptable. Join us wherever you are in Europe.”
It should be recalled that the president left the country on March 10, 2017, and left the country in the hands of the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, some state governors, National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Oyegun, and only recently, former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
