Report gathered that, some Nigerians, resident in the United Kingdom, yesterday staged a rally in support of the re-election bid of President Goodluck Jonathan.
From the early hours of yesterday, morning, organizers of the event drove through the streets of Saint James Square using loud hailers to alert residents about the planned solidarity protest.
Hundreds of supporters massed outside the city’s Chatham House to praise President Jonathan’s administration’s laudable achievements in office.
The supporters carried placards with inscriptions as: “We want Jonathan’’, “No to Buhari’’, “Buhari belongs to our past’’ and “Diaspora says no to a tyrant’’, “Nigerians in the UK say no to the return of a tyrant,” among others inscriptions.
They came to number 10, Saint James Square, venue of an event organized by the Chatham House in which the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari, was one of the key speakers.
The event was Gen Muhammadu Buhari’s first public appearance since arriving London over a week ago, fueling speculations that he was undergoing medical treatment at an undisclosed London facility in some quarters.
Buhari, disappointed his followers when he failed to appear at an interactive meeting on Tuesday arranged for him by the APC in London at the Old Kent Road.
