President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday taunted critics and protesters of his over 100 days medical sojourn in London, United Kingdom (UK) even as he thanked Nigerians who prayed for his speedy recovery devoid of political and religious affiliations.
In a veiled reference to the #ResumeOrResign campaign group who had laid siege at his Nigeria House temporary abode while in the UK, President Buhari who played host to the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) in the presidential villa, yesterday, asked the protesters to also return back to the country.
He prayed that they are not stuck there so that they do not experience the effect of Brexit and consequences of tax evasion.His words: “I am very happy with the prayers, it was very covered and reported across religions and ethnics. People were praying.
“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, 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 properties there. Those who are not paying tax here, I hope when they sell their properties there they will bring some of the money here. We need it very badly here.”
