The party noted that the presidency should understand that President Buhari is not a private citizen and as long as his upkeep and his itinerary is sourced from the hard-earned resources, there must be full disclosure, as citizens deserve to know the goal of the visit and the cost to our nation.

During the meeting, President Buhari again blamed the killings in some parts of Nigeria by suspected herdsmen on armed men from Libya.

Calls by local reporters to the media team of the President were not returned, even as the change of flight path was not explained.

He left the USA on Tuesday but did not return to Nigeria until late on Thursday.

The president's Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said, "They had a technical stopover in London".

"Unfortunately, all we got was that compromising press conference between the two presidents".
