- Nigerians have been asked not to embarrass President Muhammadu Buhari
- The call was made by the southern youths development forum
- According to the group, the president has the right to seek medical attention anywhere of his choice
Following the recent protest against President Muhammadu Buhari, the national president of southern youths development forum, Pastor Bassey James, has appealed to Nigerians in UK and the diaspora to vacate the premises housing the president.
James made the appeal when he spoke with Legit.ng in Lagos.
According to him, Buhari has the right to seek medical check-up anywhere especially following his earlier treatment.
"We all know it is always not okay to change your doctors and hospital because of the history of treatment, anybody can be treated anywhere. It depends on who started the process first, follow up is important.
"The invasion and harrasement of Mr President is not projecting our country well, respect, honour and necessary protection, protocols must be accorded to the president. We cannot play politics in everything.
"This action by some Nigerians must be condemned by all Inrespective tribe, religion and politics affiliations. No country in the 21st century should openely disgrace their leaders."
He added that the problems of Nigeria will be resolved by the people 'but certainly not by abusing or insulting our leaders'.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that as the protest against the medical trip of PBuhari continues in London, the United Kingdom, one of the organiser's of the action has revealed why they embarked on the quest to chase the president out of the country's former colonizer.
According to Reno Omokri while speaking during a live interview on BBC Facebook page, the president has no business in London given that substantial sum of money was budgeted for Aso Rock's medical facilities.
He said the organisers of the protest simply want the president to go back to Nigeria to fix things up, build hospitals, improve on the healthcare system and make life generally good for the people of Nigeria.
