Some Nigerians had staged a protest at Abuja House, London between 5pm on Friday, August 18 and 9am on Saturday, August 19, 2017.
The president returned to the country August 19 at 4.36pm.
According to PUNCH, Buhari made the declaration at his meeting with state governors at the State House on Friday.
“I am very happy with the national prayers that cut across religions and ethnicity; people were praying.
In fact, some groups in London came and sang the national anthem and asked that I should go back home. Indeed, I have come back home. I hope those who went there are not stuck there. (I hope) they will come back and join us.
Those that are stuck there with the Brexit, I hope they have weighed the implications that it won’t affect them, including those that have property there.
Those who are not paying tax here; I hope when they sell their property there, they will bring some of the money here. We need it very badly here,” Buhari said.
