The United Kingdom, UK chapter of the Nigerians in Diaspora Monitoring Group (NDMG)has denied ever staging any report against the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration as reported in some online media.
The group in an electronic statement signed by Engr. Adeka Onyilo, its UK Cordinator said though it was aware that some unscrupulous Nigerians are in the UK looking to recruit uninformed persons and foreigners alike to go out and embarrass the Nigerian government in an attempt to taint its anti-corruption crusade and for known corrupt persons to escape justice.
He however said no member of the group, or any other groups to his knowledge, staged protests in the UK at anytime over the health or against the administration of President Buhari.
Onyilo also said the group has confirmed that Mr President is not in any critical condition that calls for Nigerians to worry.
According to him, the NDMG believes in and will continue to identify with the laudable achievements of President Buhari especially in the areas of fighting corruption and defeating Boko Haram terrorism and routing the group from Nigeria’s soil.
He said, “The pockets of isolated attacks are current challenges facing the world as a whole and only concerted efforts, supports and only de-radicalization of youths that have been brainwashed into extreme forms of religious views can curb such happenings anywhere in the society.
“To this ends, the NDMG (UK) wishes to salute the efforts of the Nigerian Army which led other security partners to flush the insurgents out of their stronghold. No amount of honour is enough for the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Buratai and the gallant troops under his command that performed the magic that has brought so much honour to the country abroad.
“To the extent that the people are celebrating the peace that has returned to their various communities across the north east and Local Government elections holding in all the wards of Yobe State on Saturday February 11, 2017, we hereby declare that there are indisputable facts that the Nigerian Military have delivered and must be commended.”
He warned those attempting tarnish the image of Nigeria to have a rethink and desist from such.
