Supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari were seen carrying placards in his name at Nigeria House in London.
Buhari is now in London, where he will stay for two weeks to undergo a medical examination.
His supporters marched to the Nigeria House, where he is staying, with placards bearing various inscriptions, demonstrating their belief in Nigeria’s unity amid the country’s current challenges.
One placard said, “We are stronger together,” while another said, “We pray for President Buhari and our armed forces.”
Their support for the President comes just days after a protest was staged at the Nigeria House against his decision to have his medical checkup in London.
According to the leader of the protest, former presidential aide, Reno Omokri;
“He (Buhari) left Nigeria on the day that doctors began their strike.
“He’s not building hospitals for people, yet he comes here to enjoy the best in a country that has law and order. Why can’t he do that in his country?” Omokri asked.
“His children all schooled here in England. He has not built a single school for Nigerians. If they are sick, they all come here.”
Omokri also lamented the insecurity in the country and the hardship Nigerians are going through due to the economy under the Buhari-regime.
