Keeping Up With Buhari! 100 Days In London


Like it or not, Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has now spent the last 100 days in London with so many drama for the populace as all decisions are decided from the infamous Abuja House now used as the clinic, liaison office and official residence of the Presidency in the city of London.

Apart from setting the record of being the only president who had vied for the position for four times before winning, the Kastina State-born retired Military General has now set a new record of being the only leader to be absent from his REAL official seat for over three months.

Before now, not all knew the building called ‘Abuja House’ in London, but the edifice has played host to several individuals who have been visiting the ailing leader. While some are going to show their continuous loyalty, some are going to take orders and others just to keep up with their relevance to the present administration.

Protesters, both in Nigeria and in London have been worried as to why the Presidency is shielding the public from knowing the real state of health of their leader. While the protesters in London have been visiting the Abuja House asking the President to return home where he was elected, protesters in Nigeria are also demanding that he either returns to his official duty or resign and become a private citizen. The sad part however, is that the leader is not listening to any of the agitators, at least not for now.

The list of visitors to the Abuja House located in an exclusive highbrow area in London is almost endless. Topping the list is Acting President, President Yemi Osinbajo (who goes to London like traveling from Lagos to Abuja); Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki; Speaker House of Representatives, Rt Hon Yakubu Dogara  (both whom are the latest visitors at the time of filing this reports); top Ministers and aides of the President.

Some political analysts have revealed that it will be difficult for a motion to impeach the president to be moved in either of the two legislative chambers as both leaders are in strong relationship with the absentee president. Some even opined that the lacuna created by the 1999 Constitution of not stating the period a leader is allowed to be absent from his duty post have justified Buhari’s 100 days medical vacation since he officially transmitted to the National Assembly before embarking on the trip.

The last is yet to be heard about the President in far away Europe…
