Buhari's Health: CSO hold solidarity protest in Abuja

Buhari's Health: CSO hold solidarity protest in Abuja

Other placards at the rally today read, "Buhari/Osinbajo We Are Fully With You", "Our President Is Recuperating", "God Has Healed Nigeria", "Glory Be To God", and "Nigerians Are United For President Buhari".

Furthermore, Comrade Ogenyi noted that there was no vacuum in the Presidency as being speculated, he said that the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo exercises the full Presidential powers which allowed him of recent to make some appointments and signed the National Budget and other bills.

However, the anti-Buhari protesters were conspicuously missing at the Unity Fountain where they had initially gathered since Monday.

The pro-Buhari group argued that the sick President had not violated the Constitution, contrary to claims by the #ReturnorResign protesters.

They say that those anti-Buhari protesters were agents of corruption and had no reasons to clamour for Buhari's return because there is no vacum in governance. The group which had described the Senate as a monumental disappointment for failing to ask necessary questions about the long absence of Buhari, affirmed that police intimidation and brutality would not deter it from demanding explanation from the Federal Government on the whereabouts of the president and his medical fitness to continue in office.

In other words, Mr President's absence is not hampering governance in any way and President Muhammadu Buhari has not breached any law of the land. Members of the group were sighted chanting solidarity songs in support of the ailing President.

"This shows that, President Buhari's administration is still on course and the current distraction is unnecessary and inimical to nation building, patriotism must come to play", Ogenyi added.

The protest, which takes place on daily basis at the Unity Fountain in Abuja is convened by Deji Adeyanju and led by popular entertainer, Charles Oputa also known as Charly Boy.

President Buhari had on May 7 left Nigeria for London on medical trip to treat an undisclosed ailment.
