Video shows Buhari giving late Chief of Staff ‘Heartless’ condolence message during funeral (Watch)
Surfaced clip retrieved by #Scannews24 has shown President Mohammadu Buhari remarked an unfriendly condolence speech during the funeral of late Army Generals and key personnel.
The President was duly represented in both the inspection of the crash scene and final burial procession by Nigeria’s Defence Minister, Bashir Salihi Magashi on Friday and Saturday respectively.
The speech, which appears to be either erroneously pronounced or typographically drafted, was tended by Magashi on behalf of President Buhari.
Magashi, who was reading from a drafted script said he had “come to express” his “HEARTLESS felt condolences” to the bereaved families.
The trending clip has since caused reactions amongst Nigerians, describing it as an oversight.
The Chief Army Staff, Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, who was buried alongside other Generals and senior officers were involved in an ugly crash on Friday close to Kaduna Airport.
The affected Generals include LT GEN Attahiru (COAS), BRIG GEN MI Abdulkadir, BRIG GEN Kuliya
BRIG GEN Olayinka. And other personnel are FLT LT TO Asaniyi, MAJ LA Hayat, MAJ Hamza, SGT Umar, SGT Adesina, FLT LT AA Oludafe, and ACM Oyedepo.
Meanwhile, the President has been hit with heavy criticism for staying away from the funeral service of the fallen Generals. Notably, was Reno Omokri, said Buhari spent over thousands of miles to Paris in four days but failed to spend thirty minutes of fifteen minutes drive to the burial venue.
