Video: Abuja residents receive Buhari



Buhari and Osinbajo on Buhari’s return

Thousands of President Muhammadu Buhari supporters on Saturday temporarily blocked the highway along the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja (NAIA) singing and dancing to welcome President Buhari from London.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that security personnel deployed to ensure smooth traffic flows along the highway abandoned their duty posts as they could not control the crowds, shouting “Sai Baba Buhari’’.

Some of the People were also heard casting and shouting unprintable words against Charles Oputa, otherwise known as Charly Boy, who led a protest movement calling on President Buhari to return home or resign.

Another set of Buhari supporters also stormed the Supreme Court’s gate of the Presidential Villa, begging the security personnel on duty to allow them enter the main premises of the Villa to welcome the President.

NAN reports that President Buhari, who returned to Abuja on Saturday without his wife, Aisha, was received at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport by the acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, six state governors, ministers and some presidential aides.
