Some members of the ruling APC UK branch have staged a counter-protest in support of President Muhammadu Buhari who is currently on medical vacation in the United Kingdom. There has been ongoing protest in front of Abuja House – the official residence of Nigerian presidents when they visit London. The protests are being led and coordinated by politician and aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri. Omokri’s involvement has led some of the president’s party loyalists to argue that the protests are politically motivated. Protesters are asking that the President cut shut his vacation and return to Nigeria, they are also demanding the President to account for the country’s health budget. Buhari has always visited London for medical reasons since he was first inaugurated as President on May 29, 2015. On February 5, 2016, Buhari embarks on a six-day medical vacation to London for an undisclosed condition. He spent 104 days in 2017 after a long medical visit in London. Meanwhile, Nigerian doctors went on strike on April 1, to protest about delayed salaries among other vital issues. The health practitioners are demanding, amongst other things, payment of all salaries arrears, review of the current hazard allowance to 50 percent of consolidated basic salaries of all health workers and payment of the outstanding COVID-19 inducement allowance especially in state-owned tertiary Institutions.
