The publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, has advised Nigerians in the United Kingdom to occupy the London hospital where President Muhammadu Buhari plans to have a medical checkup.
Recall that the President left Nigeria for the United Kingdom for “routine medical leave” on Wednesday after it was announced by his media aide, Femi Adesina, on Tuesday.
But reacting in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Wednesday, Sowore described the medical trip to London as a waste of resources.
The human rights activist and politician noted that the President should do his checkup in the “world-class” hospital he built in Nigeria since he came to power.
Sowore also advised Nigerians in the UK to occupy the Abuja House in London.
He wrote on Twitter: “Nigerians in the UK must #occupy the hospital where sickly @mbuhari is wasting Nigeria’s resources and the Nigeria embassy as well as Abuja House in London, let Buhari return home and do a medical check in the ‘world-class’ hospital he built since coming to power. #Buharimustgo!”
The news of the president’s medical trip comes just as the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) on Monday insisted on embarking on a nationwide strike on Thursday.
The association had based its decision on what it described as the Nigerian government’s insincerity in implementing agreements made with the doctors in 2020.
