BREAKING: Massive Protest In The UK, As Nigerians Move To ‘Chase’ Buhari Out Of London Hospital

Nigerians in the United Kingdom, UK, have protested at the Abuja House, in London, over President Muhammadu Buhari’s alleged visit to London, for medical treatment.
The group under the platform of the Global Coalition for Security and Democracy, protested in London, over the visit by President Muhammadu Buhari, for alleged medical treatment.
According to Sahara Reporters: “The protesters, led by Gabriel Agbontaen, demanded that President Buhari should return home and fix Nigerian Hospitals, instead of seeking medical treatment abroad, and planning for the importation of foreign Medical Doctors.”

They highlighted the insecurity and lack of basic amenities in Nigeria, while Nigerian Politicians continue to travel abroad, to enjoy facilities provided by the Politicians of other countries.

The report said that the protesters queried why President Buhari continues to patronise foreign services, when foreign products such as rice, have been banned by his government.
The Chief of Staff to President Buhari, Abba Kyari, had on Monday, travelled to London, to meet with his boss, to sign the amended Bill of the Deep Offshore (and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contract) Act, which was recently passed into law by the National Assembly.

In the course of his 2015 electoral campaign, President Buhari promised Nigerians that he will not seek medical treatment abroad.
He recently banned Ministers from unjustifiable international trips.
Nonetheless, since his assumption of Office, he has spent almost 200 days out of Office, for medical tourism.
The protesters argued that since Buhari’s visit was private, he ought to privately incur the financial cost of his visit.
About N10 billion had been budgeted for the Aso Rock Clinic, since Buhari assumed Office in 2015, yet Aisha Buhari, the First Lady, complained in 2017, that there was no syringe in the Clinic.
Though no government Official came out of the Abuja House, to address the protesters, who were there for over 2-hours, some persons were seen filming the demonstrators from inside the facility.
The British Police were there to ensure that the protest remained peaceful.
