Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has warned the President, Major General, Muhammadu Buhari (retd),to return to Nigeria or be harassed out of Paris.
In a statement titled, ‘Buhari Is Needed in Nigeria, Not France’, Omokri argued that the president has no business in France and should return home to handle the worsening security issues.
WUZUPNIGERIA had reported that the president is in France for a 4-day African Finance Summit hosted by French President, Emmanuel Macron. Buhari and other Heads of Government would deliberate on the “growing security threats in Sahel and Lake Chad region, political relations, economic ties, climate change and partnership in buoying the health sector, particularly in checking spread of Covid-19, with more research and vaccines,” according to the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the president, Garba Shehu.
However, Omokri via his verified Twitter handle on Monday noted that Nigeria is drifting away, due to threats posed by worsening security challenges, adding that the president needs to drift back to the country from France.
He however warned that he would be forced to stage a protest to force him out of the country back to Nigeria.
The statement partly read, “Since the Africa-France Summit was postponed, due to COVID-19, and General Buhari was informed of it, why did he still travel to Paris? This is the question Nigerians want to be answered.
“I remind Buhari that Nigeria is drifting, and if he does not drift back to Abuja to halt the drift, I may be forced to drift to Paris to #HarassBuhariOutofParis.”
“It is clear that this is not the time for Buhari to be sneaking into Paris or London to see his doctors.
“If he is too ill to continue in office, then he should resign and let capable hands move Nigeria forward,” he added.
Recall that Omokri had staged a previous protest last month, tagged ‘#HarassBuhariOutOfLondon’ when the president paid a medical visit to the United Kingdom.
Meanwhile, Shehu noted that “Buhari will receive some key players in the oil and gas sector, engineering and telecommunications, European Council and European Union Representative for Foreign and Security Policy and Commission, and members of the Nigerian community” before returning to Nigeria.
