He has been in office for 5 years, and he is yet to initiate, start and complete even one hospital. Will Boris Johnson fail to build hospitals for the British then run to to treat himself?”

“Buhari has budgeted over ₦10 billion Naira for the Aso Rock State House Clinic in the five years he has been in office. Is that not enough money to build a hospital and train doctors that can treat him and other Nigerians? Yet, his own wife said that the clinic can’t even provide ordinary paracetamol. Google it”.

Continuing, Omokri added that “when Buhari’s son, Yusuf, was injured in an accident, we prayed for him to get well. I prayed for him. How did this man reward us? He sent soldiers to Lekki to kill peaceful, unarmed #EndSARS protesters. These are the of the men and women who prayed for his son.”

Omokri said “Only 5% of Nigerians are covered by a doctor. This man forced himself on . He promised he would do better, but he has turned into the world headquarters for extreme poverty. He has bequeathed us the highest unemployment in the world at 33%. We have the highest number of out of school at 13.5 million. And having destroyed our economy he has ran to a London that is on COVID19 lockdown to restore his health”
