Some Nigerians have supported the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), by holding prayers for him and Nigeria at the Nigeria House in London.
Buhari is currently in London where he’s scheduled to spend two weeks to enable him to undergo a medical checkup.
His supporters took to the gate of the Nigeria House where he’s staying with placards bearing various inscriptions to show that they believe in Nigeria’s unity despite the challenges in the country at the moment.
One placard said, “We are stronger together,” while another said, “We pray for President Buhari and our armed forces.”
Their support for the President comes just days after a protest was staged at the Nigeria House against his decision to have his medical checkup in London.
According to the leader of the protest, former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, “He (Buhari) 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. Why can’t he do that in his country?” Omokri asked.
He continued, “His children all schooled here in England. He has not built a single school for Nigerians. If they are sick, they all come here.”
Omokri also lamented the insecurity in the country and the hardship Nigerians are going through due to the economy under the Buhari-regime.
