Buhari laughs off ‘Resume or Resign’ campaign

Recuperating President Muhammadu Buhari is amused by the ‘Resume or Resign’ campaign recently launched against him by some Nigerians.

The campaign, led by entertainer Charles Oputa (aka Charly Boy), was meant to force him to return home immediately from his medical vacation in London and resume work, failing which he should relinquish power.

Mr.Femi Adesina, Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity who was part of the President’s media team that visited him last week in London, said Buhari has “enough time to watch television, and commended the NTA particularly, and Nigerian media generally, for bringing him up to speed with what was happening back home.

“He (Buhari) said he had been watching the protests by people who wanted him to return home post-haste or resign,” Adesina said in a write up on the London visit.
“He mentioned one of the leaders of the protest by name and laughed. I did not discern any malice in the laughter.”

You recall that yesterday the General Overseer Worldwide of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, visited the President in London.

His visit came 24 hours after Senate president Bukola Saraki and House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara visited the President.

Buhari, writing on his Twitter handle yesterday, thanked Pastor Adeboye for his visit and prayers.

“I thank Pastor Adeboye for visiting today, and for his prayers and good wishes. May God continue to bless him and his work.
Meanwhile, Charly Boy and his fellow protesters have since suspended their action following an attack on them at the popular Wuse market in Abuja on Tuesday by those the group called thugs.

However, eyewitnesses said it was traders at the market that stopped the anti-Buhari group from entering the market.
