Buhari’s favourite journalist blasts him over ‘irritating’ stance on military plane crash
A UK-based Nigerian journalist who specialises in news analysis mostly on social tools, Adeola Fayehun has blasts her right-hand man and president of Nigeria, Mohammadu Buhari.
Fayehun, in what appears irritating to her, had engaged social handles to express dissatisfaction and disappointment over the” statement made on late Friday by Buhari upon tragic development that rocked the country.
The President, Buhari on receiving the shocking news of the military plane crash that involved General Ibrahim Attahiru, the late Chief of Army Staff, and other notable officers shared grieves on his various social handles.
Buhari noted he is ‘saddened’ over the ugly incident, describing the deceased victims as ‘Heroes’ who have paid the ultimate price in preserving the security and peace of the ‘land’
Reacting, the journalist who has found joy interviewing the president during his early emergence of office within September 2015 and beyond, took a different spot against Buhari.
She lamented, despite her love and steadfast defense for the president, said the death of military personnel is not about contributing to the ‘ultimate price for peace and security’ but a Nigerian which was preventable.
She noted that both affected generals and officers did not die in the battle but were issues of using old planes to embark on a journey despite bad weather.
“stop equating that to paying the price for peace and security. Too many preventable deaths in Nigeria”
She however expressed pain for the lost and pray for the departed souls to rest in the Lord.
Similarly, Nigerians have frowned at the president for boycotting the funeral of both the Generals and Officers, described the act as irresponsible.
Buhari was represented by the Minister of Defence both at the scene of incidence, funeral procession, and laying of corpses for final respect.
