Nigerians have berated the actions of President Muhammadu Buhari and his chief of staff, Abba Kyari over the signing of ‘$1.4 billion’ PSC bill into law in London.
Speaking on the importance of the bill, President Buhari revealed that the bill is aimed at amending the act in a way to federal government get its benefits through reviewing the sharing formula.
The President went on to say that Nigeria will now receive its “fair, rightful and equitable share of income from our own natural resources for the first time since 2003″ He claimed that all along, Nigeria did not secure its equitable share of the proceeds of oil production.
Meanwhile, here are several reactions from Nigerians with regard to the way the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was ignored and Mallam Abba Kyari boarded an aircraft to London for the President to sign a bill into law.
Why on earth would overzealous (oversabi) Malam Abba Kyari board an aircraft (highly likely with tax payers money) to London for the President (who is on a private leave) to sign a bill into law while fully knowing that the VP is around. Total disregard and disrespect to the VP.

So Abba Kyari flew all the way to London to give Buhari a piece of paper to sign?
Why go through all the expenses of foreign travels, when we have the VP?
Nigeria is an amusement Park!

Where in d world will a President travel out of the country and not hand over power to his deputy.Why would Abba Kyari travel all d way to London just to get the signature of the President. This is just total disregard of d office of Vice President nd wastage of tax payers money

Y.E Mr President @MBuhari in my humble opinion I think it's needless for Abba Kyari to run courier between Nigeria and London at the expense of taxpayers just to get approval or signature from you. You have a loyal and able VP @ProfOsinbajo who has delivered and will always do.

'Cut spending cut spending' but Abba Kyari still had to waste our Country's resources just to take a Document all the Way to U.K for @MBuhari to sign when @ProfOsinbajo is well enough to act in the capacity of Mr. President in his absence @NigeriaInfoAbj pic.twitter.com/hhgKLYui21

According To Buharideens; Buhari Doesn’t Need To Transmit Power To Osinbajo, Having Abba Kyari Is Enough

Prez @MBuhari departed Abuja last Monday. On Tue NASS passed the Deep Offshore Bill. 5 days later, Abba Kyari hops into the choicest Prez jet & hits London for Baba to "sa hanu", as if Baba won't return to Abuja. Meanwhile, this trip cost 9ja taxpayers at least $140k!

Here's the Nigerian President @MBuhari and Vice President Administration, Malam Abba Kyari doing REAL work from PMB's home town (London).

How do you describe a VP that insists on remaining in office after his boss refuses to hand over power to him when he goes on leave and instead gets his Chief of Staff to fly over to London to sign legislative bills into law? If your boss can't trust you why are you still there?
