A one man protest by a Nigerian man named Jonathan Goodluck Oberia at the Abuja house in London has sparked outrage among some Nigerians on Social Media.
In the video which surfaced online on Tuesday, August 8, Mr Oberia could be heard asking President Buhari to come out of his London residence.
The man who spoke in Nigerian colloquial known as pigeon English also called on the president to stop eating fura da nono, a northern Nigeria dish in London, while laughing as he made the statement.
But the video has angered some Nigerians who accused Mr Oberia of disrespecting the president.
Others however defended the action of Oberia on the basis that Nigeria was too big to be ruled from abroad.

Meanwhile, the personal assistant to the president on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, has attacked some Nigerians demanding that the health status of President Muhammadu Buhari be made public.
Onochie in a lengthy statement on Facebook on Wednesday, August 9, described those clamouring for Buhari to address the nation as ignorant of the provisions of the 1999 constitution.
The aide said some people in public service are private people in that they like to keep their personal lives out of the public domain while others place their personal lives in the public domain for all to see, noting that its an individual choice.
She stated that President Buhari had adhered to the provisions of the constitution by transferring power to his vice to become acting president, noting that it was wrong to compare the Buhari situation with that of late President Yar’Adua.
She said in Yar’Adua’s case the National Assembly was not informed nor were Nigerians informed that he was going on a medical leave.
Are Nigerians really tired of President Buhari? This is the question this video wants answered:
