The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has said President Muhammadu Buhari can rule Nigeria from any part of the world.
The APC Chairman was reacting to the signing of ‘the Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contract, PSC bill into law by President Buhari in London.
Nigerians had condemned the decision of the president’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, to take the bill to his boss in the United Kingdom.
Speaking during a visit to Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, Oshiomhole berated those criticising Buhari.
The former Edo state governor noted that the president is not mandated to stay only in the country to rule Nigeria.
Oshiomhole said: “I was also excited to see Mr President sign into law that Act in London. Again, a couple of implication on this. That like you the President recognized that if you can manage it as quickly as you did and come out with such fundamental amendment that has such 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 the 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.”
