Following the resilient protests that welcomed Dictator Buhari to London after he broke his campaign pledge for the umpteenth time by travelling to Europe to seek medical attention at the expense of the Nigerian people, he has since been placed in what former President Jonathan’s aide Reno Omokri referred to as a “house arrest” at the English capital.
Since Buhari arrived London on April 30, 2021 for medical checkup, he has been confined in his room after Nigerians thronged to protest at the Abuja House, 2 Campden Hill, Kensington, London, where he is being hosted.
Nigerians in London insist that the dictator has no moral justification to travel to London or anywhere else for treatment after strangling Nigeria’s healthcare sector and overseeing the Lekki Massacre of October 20, 2020 at the Lekki Tollgate in Lagos.
After three consistent days of frustrating Buhari at the Abuja House, he was smuggled to another place: Abbey Lodge, Park Road, Marylebone, London, NW8 7RJ. Nigerians in England found out his new location and again occupied it, heaping a tremendous amount of frustration on a man who has been tormenting Nigerians since May 29, 2015 when he was sworn into office.
Frustrated, Buhari and his hirelings began to shop for pro-Buhari protesters in London, their typical strategy in Nigeria, where a group of hungry, illiterate youth are hired to attack and frustrate genuine protesters demanding for citizens’ welfare and good governance.
Their plan is to waste £75 British pounds on each fake protester they intend to hire, a sum which is an equivalent of N42,680 – at a time when Nigerians are daily tormented by poverty, whilst several children sleep on an empty stomach.
Buhari left Nigeria at a time when the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) embarked on an indefinite strike action, after the Buhari regime bluntly refused to pay their salaries of the last four months, as well as other demands previously raised by the doctors.
Earlier today, the Association published a photo on its official Twitter handle, revealing a group of doctors performing a surgical operation in a dark theatre. The photo was accompanied by the following words:
“Just because we love our patients and not bothered often times, we go as far as using phone lights to carry out surgeries while the persons whose responsibilities is to provide the needful are always in the UK and Dubai for health care.”
The doctors insist that they will not back down except their demands are met.
Today, whilst Nigerians protested in London, one of the protesters said:
“Nigerians are not taking it anymore. We are here and we are going to send a strong message, not only to Nigeria but to the UK Government. You cannot allow a terrorist government in your country. You can’t! You can’t do that. Send him back! Send him back home to where he built hospitals that are deserving of his checkup. Do that straightaway,” he said, before he and his colleagues chorused:
“Buhari must go! Buhari must go!”
Desperate to grab political power after his dethronement in 1985 following a coup d’état that ushered him to power, Buhari made bogus promises of transforming the health sector, including deceptive claims that he and his appointees shall have no business travelling out of the country for medical treatment. However, in a curious twist, Buhari spent several months in London upon his election whilst treating an undisclosed ailment. Till date, dictator Buhari has not had the decency of explaining to Nigerians the cost of treating his ailment, despite claiming to be a man of integrity.
