The Presidency has described protest in London as an uncovered plan
by “Nigerian looters” to disrupt the ongoing official visit of President
Muhammadu Buhari.

According to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), sources in the presidency
told State House correspondents on Tuesday night that the alleged
looters had rented motley crowd of professional demonstrators to protest
against President Buhari on his arrival to London.
According to the impeccable sources in Aso Villa and Britain,
extremely corrupt Nigerians who were custodians of slush funds stolen
from Nigeria, and hiding in UK have colluded to form a league of
protesters.
The sources noted that the protesters’ singular aim was to distract
and disorganise the scheduled state visit of the President to England.
President Buhari is billed to hold bilateral talks with Prime Minister Theresa May and other dignitaries.
“Barely 24 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari declared his
intention to contest for another term in office as President of Nigeria,
the camps of alleged looters and corrupt elements within and outside
the country have been jolted.

“This has forced them to push panic buttons including renting a
motley crowd of professional demonstrators to protest against the
President on his arrival into the United Kingdom.
“Esteemed Nigerians home and abroad, friends and business investors
in Nigeria, should please see through the veil of the motive behind the
Abuja House, Kensington London demonstration.
“It was an orchestrated act of desperation and a ploy to blackmail
and hoodwink the President from concentrating on his anti corruption
campaign , which is fast gaining grounds locally and internationally.
“This unpatriotic act is not unconnected to the Federal government
policies to name and shame corrupt citizens and looters; to collate
database of Nigerians with homes in UK who are not paying the right
taxes, and the hot drive to prosecute all financial defaulters through
bilateral and multilateral means,” the source told NAN.
A public affairs analyst who preferred anonymity also said “the
protest was bench-marked on an assemblage of local grievances and
national challenges which the government is already tackling head on,
such as the herdsmen versus agrarian farmers clashes, fuel scarcity
which no longer exists and trumped up charge of hunger in the land at a
time when prices of food items are beginning to drop and inflation on
the decrease.
“An insider vowed that they will take their demonstrations to the
venue of CHOGM holding later in the month in Britain, which President
Buhari is attending as a Commonwealth Head of State.”
When contacted, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on
Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, reacting to the London protest,
said that the President would not be distracted from his mission in the
UK.
