- A group of Nigerians decided to protest at the gate of the Abuja House in London
- One of President Buhari's critics, Reno Omokri, is among the protesters who held placards and sang "we're going down to Abuja house to chase Buhari out of town"
- Nigeria's president is currently in London where he will spend two weeks for a medical checkup
- Omokri is not happy that Buhari is enjoying the best medical care in another country while the Nigerian health sector is in a mess
It's no news that former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, is not a fan of President Muhammadu Buhari, and he has shown this in words in action.
On Friday, April 2, the former presidential aide led a group of people to protest against President Muhammadu Buhari’s medical trip to the UK.
The protest is taking place in front of Abuja House, London.
The president is currently in London on a medical trip and would be spending two weeks there.
In a series of tweets, Omokri said he is playing his part and called on other Nigerians to stand up for their rights.
Decrying the inadequacies of Nigeria’s health sector, he questioned Buhari's decision to have himself treated in London. According to him, the president has not built any hospital since he took over power.
"He left Nigeria on the day that doctors began their strike. He’s not building hospitals for people, yet he comes here to enjoy the best in a country that has law and order. ”
In a video shared on his page, he was spotted singing "We're going down to Abuja House to chase Buhari out of town", alongside some other protesters
The former aide also spoke about the 2020 EndSARS protest and the Lekki shooting.
He added that he was proud of Nigeria but can't say the same about the leaders.
No protest against Buhari in London
The All Progressives Congress, United Kingdom chapter, had earlier described as fake news a social media report that some Nigerians stormed the Nigerian House in London in protest against President Buhari.
The UK chapter of the ruling party was reacting to photos shared by a Twitter user claiming a protest was held in London by Nigerians against the president.
The party also stated that the photos shared were from earlier street processions by Nigerians in the United Kingdom.
