Unic Press UK: Protesters stormed Nigeria’s capital Abuja on Monday, the 7th August 2017, carrying placards as they seek to know why the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, who has been in the United Kingdom since May 2017 on medical grounds should not resign from office, or resume work immediately.

Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa [Charly Boy], 66-years-old, a lawyer, maverick entertainer and famous singer/songwriter, is among the conveners of the protest that has been ongoing since Monday [7th August 2017] morning.
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, who traveled to London since May 7th 2017 – over ninety day’s ago – on medical grounds [leaving power under the control of the vice-president Yemi Osibanjo], will not return to presidential duties until his doctors give a clean bill of health.
Buhari’s state of health is unknown to the Nigerian public. Many, including a Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka called on the President to disclose his state of health.
Official records show that Buhari is 74-years-old based on a birthday of 17 December 1942. Many intellectuals have questioned whether this was true, saying that he is indeed older given his contemporaries in the Nigerian military.
