Some Nigerians have criticized President Muhammadu Buhari over his planned visit to the United Kingdom today.
According to Adesina, the president is not expected to return immediately after the summit, stating that he would be undergoing his earlier scheduled medical checkup.
This is coming at a time the entire nation is enveloped with tension and anxiety as the two major secessionists in the country, Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho, are set to face trial.
While Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB is expected to resume trial at a Federal High Court in Abuja, his counterpart, the Yoruba Nation freedom fighter will be appearing before Court D’Appeal in Cotonou, Benin Republic, following his arrest last week Monday.
Some concerned Nigerians who reacted to the President’s move, accused him of deliberately setting the country “on fire” and moving to another country.
Others speculated that the President must have been invited by the British Government to explain Kanu’s rearrest and extradition to the country.
Below are some of the reactions gathered by DAILY POST from the comment section of Femi Adesina’s statement on Facebook.
Patrick Oderigbok: “The President has set the country on fire and he is now running to another country”.
Ohunne Michael: “Continue to deceive yourself. Tell them the UK invited Buhari and his partner in crime from Kenya to come and explain their rules to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu kidnapping and smuggling to Nigeria”.
Olayemi Juwon: “You see dem crooks? Now dey carry two Igbo men to go and show Boris Johnson that they are not being marginalized at all in order to debunk Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s claims. Those ones too for sure go dey shake their empty heads in agreement”.
Cas Patrick: “This meeting is practically about Kanu ,Biafra and his Biafra course, the igbo men Onyeama and Nwajiuba he carries with him is the camouflage that igbos don’t want to be separated!
Bauchi Naija: “Brother Femi Adesina, Don’t tell me the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson invited PMB and his cohort from Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta to come and explain to him how they both conspired to kidnap Mazi Nnamdi Kanu back to Nigeria
“And here you are trying to cover it up with the caption that your boss, PMB, attends Global Education Summit. Ur mumu don do.
“And he wants to use the same opportunity to patronize the British doctors with our hard earned tax payers money in the name of a medical trip. It’s Well.
“Reno Omokri , Please help us and do the needful”.
