Some Nigerians who are supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, held prayers for him and the country at the Nigeria House in London.
Buhari is currently in London where is undergoing a routine medical check-up.
His supporters gathered at the gate of the Nigeria House where he is staying with placards bearing various inscriptions to show that they believe in Nigeria’s unity despite the challenges bedeviling the country.
“We are stronger together,” a placard read, while another said: “We pray for President Buhari and our armed forces.”
There had been an anti-Buhari protest at the Nigeria House two days ago, with protesters showing their displeasure against the President’s decision to have his medical check-up in London.
Leader of the protest, Reno Omokri, who is also a former presidential aide, said Buhari left the country on the day resident doctors began their nationwide indefinite 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 Buhari’s economic policies.
Buhari is expected to be back to the country in the second week of April.
