Nigerians continue to converge at dictator Buhari’s residence in London to protest against his decision to embark on medical tourism after refusing to revamp Nigeria’s medical health sector, despite making several promises to that effect.
CitizensAlert previously reported that dictator Buhari travelled to London for medical tourism at a time when Nigerian doctors had announced their decision to embark on an indefinite strike by April 1, 2021 following Buhari’s refusal to pay their outstanding salaries during the last four months and several allowances.
Following his arrival in London on March 30, 2021, Nigerians in England have made it a duty to resume at his residence, Abuja House, asking that he returns to Nigeria to get treated in the same system he refused to revamp in violation of his campaign pledge.
Embarrassed by these protests, on Monday, April 5, the Buhari regime mobilised poor Nigerians in London, paid them £75 each to stage a pro-Buhari demonstration in front of the Abuja House in a bid to quell the embarrassment the dictator has faced in England. The move was the regime’s desperate attempt to project the false impression that the dictator is popular amongst his people.
There have been clashes amongst the two groups, with the pro-people protesters chasing the paid protesters away from Abuja House on April 10.
The Buhari dictatorship, known for violating human rights in Nigeria in the most reckless fashion, attempted to use London Metropolitan Police to harass protesters like it often does in Nigeria, but the London police has been showing respect for fundamental rights unlike their counterparts in Nigeria under dictator Buhari.
