REACTIONS TRAIL PRESIDENT BUHARI’S SIGNING OF DEEP SHORE BILL IN UK.
Nigerians are blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for signing the Amended Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Bill while he is on a private visit to the United Kingdom.
Buhari signing the Deep Offshore (amendment) Bill in London raised questions on whether Osinbajo could not have signed the new law back home in Nigeria.
Some organizations, including the Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, and the Transition Monitoring Group said Buhari’s action was an indication of impunity in his administration.
Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says President Muhammadu Buhari can preside over Nigeria from wherever he is, maintaining that Nigeria has passed the “Mungo Park era”.
But the Presidency, in a swift response, said the President could perform his duties from any part of the world.
