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.

Omokri stated:

"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

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.
