Reno Omokri leads anti-Buhari protest at Nigeria House, London (photos & Video)

Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has led a group of people to protest against President Muhammadu Buhari’s medical trip to the UK.

The protest is taking place in front of Abuja House, London.

Omokri, in a series of tweets on Friday, said the protesters were at the Abuja House to harass Buhari out of London.

He lamented the inadequacies of Nigeria’s health sector and also criticised the president over the Lekki shooting during the #EndSARS protest in Lagos.

He also criticised Buhari over the rehabilitation of repentant Boko Haram insurgents.

Similarly, Omoyele Sowore, convener of the #RevolutionNow Movement, posted a video of a man holding a placard that reads “Buhari must go! #OccupyNigeria”.

The man, who wore a #RevolutionNow beret, said: “Buhari go home! We are outside here in Abuja house. Nigerians are calling on Buhari to go home.

“Our people are suffering while you come to the UK and enjoy the benefits of taxpayers that you did not look after. Buhari, go home.”

Buhari has embarked on several trips to the UK to seek medical care since he assumed office.

In 2019, the president had lamented that Nigeria was losing about N400 billion to medical tourism annually.

He later said frequent medical trips abroad must stop because they are not beneficial to the country.

But despite this, on Tuesday, the president departed Nigeria for London for a medical check-up.

The trip is expected to last for two weeks.

A report by TheCable showed that the president has spent one hundred and seventy-one days on medical vacation in the UK.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had also tackled the president over the recent trip, describing it as a ripple effect of his administration’s failure to fix Nigeria’s healthcare system.
