Protests Meets Buhari at Abuja House London

Angry Nigerians stormed Abuja House, the residence where President Muhammadu Buhari who is currently in the UK is residing on Tuesday to vent their anger over what they described as the failings of the Nigerian leader back home. The protesters were armed with different placards to indicate their grievances against the Buhari administration. As reflected in some of the placards, the protesters condemned failure of the Nigerian government to stop killings of citizens by alleged Fulani bandits in Benue and other parts of Nigeria.

Some of the protesters were also against the bid by the President to seek re-election among other complaints of inaction of the Buhari administration.

The protest was peaceful as police officers were on ground to maintain law and order.

However, the presidency said the protest was the handiwork of corrupt group of people who are scared of Buhari second term bid.

On Monday, during the National Executive council meeting of APC, President Buhari had made his intention to seek re-election known to the executives.

Government owned News Agency of Nigeria quoted a source as saying, “Barely 24 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari declared his intention to contest for another term in office as president of Nigeria, the camps of alleged looters and corrupt elements within and outside the country have been jolted,”

“This has forced them to push panic buttons including renting a motley crowd of professional demonstrators to protest against the President on his arrival into the United Kingdom.”
