Former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba, has expressed disappointment while calling out President Muhammadu Buhari, and his vice, Yemi Osinbajo, for not attending the funeral of the Chief of Army Staff, Ibrahim Attahiru, and officers who died in a military crash on Friday, May 21.
Naija News understands that chief of Army Staff, Ibrahim Attahiru reportedly died in a military plane crash that occurred in Kaduna State, on Friday, 21st and was buried the next day.
Reacting to the absent of President Buhari at the burial ceremony, Garba, on Saturday, via his Twitter handle, expressed disappointment noting that the only thing that matters to our leaders is political power and nothing more.
Read his post below;
”In a war situation, we lost four generals, majors and lieutenants, yet neither the President nor his vice, senate President nor his deputy, speaker nor his deputy deem it fit to grace the burial. Even the wife of the COAS was neither accompanied by First Lady or second lady.
Only two Govs, Zulum & Buni, with few ministers, might have attended. While Gov. Wike is having Political Rally, other govs are attending a wedding in Kano. I saw the video of the wife of late COAS walking to pay her last respect to her husband with few friends. I was heartbroken.
Yet most of these leaders may say they have a very important reason why they didn’t attend. Coincidentally, all of them. None of them would sacrifice 30 minutes for the life of soldiers who died trying to protect us. The highest level officers of our land. How can that be?
For them, Twitter is enough for condolences, but they can go campaigning all over the country during elections. Apparently, the only thing that matters to our leaders is not us, or even the most senior members of their appointees, but political power.”
