Reno Omokri Suspends His Protest Against President Buhari’s Medical Trip In London
Reno Omokri, ex-aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has temporally suspended his protest against the medical trip of President Muhammadu Buhari in London, United Kingdom.
KanyiDaily recalls that President Buhari had traveled to London on March 30, where he would be spending two weeks to enable him to undergo a medical checkup.
On Friday, April 2, Reno Omokri led a group of people to protest at the Nigeria House against Buhari’s decision to have his medical checkup in London.
In a statement on Tuesday, April 13, Omokri said that his group has temporarily suspended the #HarassBuhariOutofLondon protest to allow Buhari who had been in London for a “rest” to “observe his Islamic fast in peace.”
The former presidential aide said that Omoyele Sowore’s #BuhariMustGo group has also been appealed to suspend the protests in the spirit of Ramadan.
“Due to the Ramadan fast which began today, April 13, 2021, we have decided to temporarily suspend #HarassBuhariOutofLondon to allow General Muhammadu Buhari to observe his fast in peace.
“We believe it is the humane thing to do, given our love for God and humanity.
“I also personally call on Omoyele Sowore’s #BuhariMustGo group, who have periodically been holding a separate protest, which is not affiliated to ours, to consider granting this concession on humanitarian grounds.
“We are closely monitoring both his residence and his doctors officers and if General Buhari makes an attempt to see his London doctors during this period, we will consider this a breach of our truce and resume the protests.
“However, as long as Buhari does not breach this, I believe we should respect the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, not because of Buhari, but because of our love for the Muslim ummah who are also victims of General Buhari’s misrule.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Buhari supporters had also stormed the Nigeria House in London on Monday, praying and holding placards in support of the President.
