“Buhari Can Rule Nigeria From Any Part Of The World” – Oshiomhole Defends PMB

Oshiomhole said Buhari can rule the nation from anywhere.

The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has said that President Muhammadu Buhari can preside over Nigeria from any part of the world.

Oshiomhole made this statement during a courtesy visit to the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan on Tuesday, November 5, 2019.

He was reacting to those criticizing President Buhari for signing an amended Nigerian law in the UK where he is currently on a private visit.

KanyiDaily had reported that Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, on Monday, flew to London to submit a new bill on offshore oil fields to the president for assent.

Many Nigerians condemned the move, accusing Kyari of usurping the powers of Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.

Some also justified their argument with the refusal of Buhari to hand over to Osinbajo while he was leaving the country on a three-week ‘private visit’ to London.

In reaction, Oshiomhole insisted that Nigeria has gone beyond what he termed “Mungo Park era” where a President is expected to only function from his base. He said;

“I was also excited to see Mr. President sign into law that Act in London. Again, a couple of implication on this. That like you the President recognized that if you can manage it as quickly as you did and come out with such fundamental amendment that has such enormous impact on our national revenue, he as President also has to do the needful.

“I think by signing into law at the Nigerian House in London, it shows that the wherever the President is, he is Presiding over Nigeria and with the benefit of modern technology we have passed the Mungo Park era.

“So, signing it in London for me has also made several statements. Namely, that where ever national interest is involved, the President is on duty and wherever he is he is presiding.

“I also salute his assenting to the Bill as fast as he did and even at the Nigerian House in London.”
