- As the president prepares to return to Nigeria, after 105 days away from work, there are many conflicting opinions
- Some are very happy to see President Buhari return, while others say he was forced by the renewed protests against him
- Other supporters of Buhari organized a rally in London urging him to ignore distractions
While, the leaders of the Our Mumu Don Do protest on Wednesday, August 16, cancelled a proposed march to the Presidential Villa from the popular Unity Fountain in Abuja, Nigeria for fear of clash with a pro-Buhari group.
Another Pro-Buhari rally happened, but this did not take place at Unity Fountain. Instead it happened at Abuja House in London
Nigerians were pictured with placards urging President Buhari to carry on and ignore the distractions of his enemies.
Below are pictures from the protest:
It was earlier reported that a group led by popular musician and former television presenter, Charles 'Charly Boy' Oputa, said it will not continue with its march to the Presidential Villa as scheduled.
Speaking to NAIJ.com, Deji Adeyanju, the convener of the Concerned Nigerians, a civil society organization, said: "It would not be wise for us to march to the Villa as planned."
However, their protest did hold in the UK as they gathered outside President Muhammadu Buhari's London residence.
