Five days ago, Buhari released a statement to the effect that he will spend two weeks in London. This morning, I released a statement that I am leaving the Ukraine area tomorrow to return to normal activities. All of a sudden Buhari ran back to Abuja. Fear of #HarassBuhariOutofLondon? Let us see if he will fly to London next week.
As an aside, let me say that I am very pleased with the calibre of celebrities who have turned up in London for Davido’s concert.
You guys know how proud I am of Davido and how I have used my platform to promote music of Nigerian origin.
However, I just have an observation to make. Nigeria has been crippled with fuel scarcity for over month. Our economy is virtually at a standstill. No fuel, no power, no security, no healthcare, no school (ASUU strike). Thousands of Nigerians are still stranded in Ukraine and it’s neighbouring nations, of which I flew to the war zone to help them.
In all of this, General Buhari came on a holidaying to London, initially planning to spend two weeks (until I released my statement). Yet, if I had held #HarassBuhariOutofLondon, none of these people who have chartered planes from Nigeria, and flows first class to attend Davido’s concert will show up!
Meanwhile, I live in California, in my own house, with a swimming pool, and access to fuel and multiple cars. I am not directly going to benefit from what I am fighting for!
