- APC mocked the poor attendance at the protest which called on Presidetn Buhari to return to Nigeria

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the anti-Buhari protest which held outside the Abuja House in London on Friday, August 18.

In a press statement from its United Kingdom chapter, the APC described the protest as a 'pay-as-you-go' event that should not have happened.

According to the acting spokesman of the party in UK Jacob Ogunseye: "the protest and vigil organised by some elements to keep vigil in Abuja House London where President Muhammadu Buhari is currently residing as a sham and absolutely uncalled for. We respect the right to protest but strongly disagree with the objective of this ill-advised and pay-as-you-go protest at Abuja house."

He added that "the shambolic vigil attended by some paid Nigerians had about five (5) people in attendance; this signified the extent of the failure on the part of the organiser.

"The vigil monitored by the APC UK said it is a disgrace for anyone to organise a protest against an elder statesman who has adhered strictly to the provisions of the constitution of Nigeria before leaving the country, he added that the organisers could have geared their efforts in looking inward to the successes of the administration rather than making a mockery of themselves.

"They could have camped at the posh houses of known looters of Nigeria's treasury who are presently hibernating in London, UK."

He continued: "it was obvious that the protesters were hired and paid individuals. Reinstating his facts, he queried the reasons why the few men that turned up had to cover their faces if their course of action was truly genuine.

"Nigerians should ignore this ignoble course and continue to pray for quick and total recovery of President Buhari, Ogunseye said.

"As at today, it is clear that the President has made good recovery and we are confident that he will return to Nigeria very soon."

NAIJ.com reported that the "Buhari return home" protest started right outside the current residence of the president, the Abuja House, London came just several hours after the visit between President Buhari and Pastor Adeboye.
