The Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, has taken a swipe at the London #ResumeOrResign protesters.
Coming after he returned to Nigeria last Saturday, the Nigerian president took a dig at the protesters who occupied the front of the Abuja House in London where he stayed for over 100 days on his extended medial leave in UK.
The president in reaction to the protest stated that he hopes those protesters will also join him in Nigeria now that he has returned home.
Speaking at a meeting with the state governors at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, President Muhammadu Buhari whose continued absence during his medical leave created a source of worry amongst Nigerians especially regarding his health said: “I am very happy with the national prayers that cut across religions and ethnicity; people were praying.”
He continued: “In fact, some groups in London came and sang the national anthem and asked that I should go back home. Indeed, I have come back home. I hope those who went there are not stuck there. (I hope) they will come back and join us.
“Those that are stuck there with the Brexit, I hope they have weighed the implications that it won’t affect them, including those that have property there. Those who are not paying tax here; I hope when they sell their property there, they will bring some of the money here. We need it very badly here.”
