'Return Home Too', Buhari Tells London Protesters
Some Nigerians in the UK had held an all-night protest against Buhari’s long absence from Nigeria at the Abuja House, asking him to either return to Nigeria to resume work or resign so as to allow a more capable person to lead the country.
Now that the President is in Nigeria, he hopes those Nigerians in London will also return home.
The President, who returned to Nigeria last Saturday after spending over 100 days in the British capital, spoke at a meeting he had with state governors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
During his meeting with governors, Buhari said: “I am very happy with the national prayers that cut across religions and ethnicity; people were praying.
“In fact, some groups in London came and sang the national anthem and asked that I should go back home. Indeed, I have come back home. I hope those who went there are not stuck there. (I hope) they will come back and join us.
“Those that are stuck there with the Brexit, I hope they have weighed the implications that it won’t affect them, including those that have property there.
“Those who are not paying tax here; I hope when they sell their property there, they will bring some of the money here. We need it very badly here.”
