Some Nigerians in the United Kingdom have stormed the Abuja House, 2 Campden Hill, Kensington, London, United Kingdom, demanding for President Muhammadu Buhari’s repatriation. In a video tweeted on his verified Twitter handle, a Nigerian broadcaster and former presidential aide, Reno Omokiri, said they were there to chase the president back home.
In the trending video, Reno Omokri was seen talking to the police officers. In the video, Reno stood his ground by telling the policemen that he and other Nigerians have the rights to protest.
According to his words; “The Police came but the #HarassBuhariOutOfLondon went on. A frightened @MBuhari refused to come,” he tweeted.
In a separate tweet earlier, Reno Omokri said, “The eagle has landed to harass the ego out of London. It is happening people. #HarassBuhariOutOfLondon is on. God willing, I will see you at Abuja House, 2 Campden Hill, Kensington, London W8 7AD by 12 noon. We will observe #COVID-19 protocols even as we chase @MBuhari back home,” he stated.
The president, on Tuesday departed Nigeria for the United Kingdom to undergo a medical check-up. Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari spoke from London yesterday where he assured Nigerians that his administration will not abandon the weak and poor.
According to his words; “As a government, we will continue to ensure that the weak, the poor, and the underprivileged in our midst are not abandoned. We have reached out with palliative care even in the midst of dwindling resources; we have tried our best to provide support to families and businesses affected at this time.”
As Christians celebrate Easter, the President says it is an opportunity to renew hope and faith, show love and appreciation to one another, and not to despair, no matter the challenges of the period.
President Buhari acknowledged and appreciated the sacrifices of doctors, nurses and other frontline health workers, who have made the difference in saving lives and ensuring the reduction of the spread of the Corona virus.
According to his word; “I thank Nigerians who have religiously adhered to various interventions to curb the spread of COVID-19, including regular hand washing; safe distancing, wearing of face masks, and embrace of vaccination.
“We are united in our belief that if we do the right things, make the right decisions and act responsibly, the pandemic, like others before it, will no longer be a threat to us”, he added.
On security, President Muhammadu Buhari assured Nigerians that the insecurity situation in the country will become a thing of the past.
According to his words; “I am convinced that the new resolve within the security personnel to make sure that insecurity in the country becomes part of our history will come to pass.
“We should not allow the antics of a few mischief mongers to fragment the unity and faith that the vast majority of citizens of this country cherish and believe in. As I have said before, we are better and stronger as one nation under God”, he stated.
He commended the enforcement and military personnel who continued to confront evil-minded individuals through the darkest of nights to keep us safe”. He recalled that a year ago, in most of our major cities, our celebrations were somewhat subdued, as we battled the effect of the deadly Coronavirus pandemic.
According to his words; “The restrictions meant that our brethren could not attend traditional church services as they would have wished. I salute their resilience and understanding. Today, we are able to congregate and worship together cautiously,” he stated.
