BUHARI FAILED TO ATTEND SHEHU SHAGARI’S BURIAL !!!
BUHARI DEMONSTRATED A SHOW OF IGNORANCE AND BIG INSULT TO SOKOTO STATE AND NIGERIAN CITIZENS
The remains of Nigeria’s second republic President, Shehu Shagari, was laid to rest on Saturday at his hometown in Shagari Local Government Area of Sokoto State.
Mr Shagari died on Friday at the age of 93 at the National Hospital, Abuja.
His remains were received by Gov. Aminu Tambuwal at the Sultan Abubakar III International Airport Sokoto at about 1: 00 p.m.
He was later buried according to Islamic rights in his house at about 3:25 p.m.
The funeral prayer was led by Shehu Galadanchi and dignitaries that attended included Wazirin Sokoto, Sambo Junaidu as well as Governors of Kebbi and Zamfara States, Atiku Bagudu and Abdulaziz Yari, respectively.
Others were state, Yahaya Abdudkarim, Sokoto Deputy Governor, Manniru Dan’iya, Aliyu Wamakko, Emir of Argungu, Sama’ila Mera.
The federal government delegation at the funeral was led by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustspha, Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and Minister of Commerce, Trade and Investment, A’isha Abubakar.
Buhari has truly insulted Sokoto state. He not only refused to attend Shagari’s burial but he sent Boss Mustapha (Christian) to represent him to the seat of the Caliphate for a purely Islamic event.
You will recall that when Awolowo’s wife died, Buhari travelled to Ikene (Ogun State) to attend the burial just because of Yoruba votes. Awolowo was NEVER a president of Nigeria but just a regional leader.
Why pay respect to a woman that was not a public officer over a former President ?
It is very clear that Buhari has never hidden his hatred for anything that Sokoto stands for despite the state voting for him since 2003.
WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE BURIAL OF A FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA !!!
BUT HE WAS CONSPICUOUSLY SEEN AT UYO FOR POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS.
