Buhari’s supporters, Jonathan’s
sympathisers clash in London

Supporters of the presidential
candidate of the All Progressives
Congress, Muhammadu Buhari, and a
group of Nigerians opposed this his candidacy on Thursday clashed at
the premises of Chatham House,
London, where Buhari delivered
a lecture.

Gen. Buhari, a retired major general
and former military head of state, was
invited to Chatham House to deliver a
lecture entitled,

“Prospects for
Democratic Consolidation in Africa:
Nigeria’s Transition”.
However, before he arrived for the
event, some protesters gathered in
front of the venue placards and
chanting songs in protest against the
the APC candidate.

The anti-Buhari demonstrators bore
placards with the inscriptions such as
“Buhari Belongs to the past: The past
can’t belong to the future of our
children”, “A dictator hiding behind
another pastor cannot be a democrat”,
and “Nigeria will not return to the
past.”

Others wore T-shirts with inscriptions
such as “Diaspora says no to a
tyrant.”

However, to counter the protest, the
members of the United Kingdom
chapter of the APC also mobilized to
the venue to confront the the PDP
supporters during which a verbal
clash erupted.

The pro-Buhari elements had placards
bearing messages such as “Nigerians
deserve better than 16 years misrule,”
and “Vote Buhari/Osinbajo.”
