A citizen said;’This type of news is becoming irritating! King of Morrocco discussing about the welfare of our president and he has not seen the need to discuss with ,we, the electorate.
‘Buhari and his cabal are just making a mockery of Nigeria. The president operates from U.K. on one hand and operate by proxy in Nigeria on the other hand. This news is not needed because he was not made President in order to function from a U.K. office.”
