The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, has said President Muhammadu Buhari can rule Nigeria from any part of the world.
Oshiomhole made this statement with regard to those criticizing the President for signing a bill into law in London.
Oshiomhole insisted that Nigeria has gone beyond the “Mungo Park era” where a President is expected to only function from his country.
Oshiomhole said, “I was also excited to see Mr. President sign into law that Act in London. Again, a couple of implications on this, that like you, the President recognized that if you can manage it as quickly as you did and come out with such a fundamental amendment that has such an enormous impact on our national revenue, he as President also has to do the needful.
I think by signing into law at the Nigerian House in London, it shows that wherever the President is, he is presiding over Nigeria and with the benefit of modern technology we have passed the Mungo Park era. So, signing it in London for me has also made several statements. Namely, that where ever national interest is involved, the President is on duty and wherever he is, he is presiding.
I also salute his assenting to the Bill as fast as he did and even at the Nigerian House in London.”
