President Buhari Condoles With Late COAS Attahiru's Widow Fati ....

 President Muhammadu Buhari has described Lt. General Ibrahim Attahiru, the late Chief of Army Staff as an outstanding soldier and an institution builder, who fought valiantly for Nigeria until he breathed his last.

In a telephone conversation Sunday evening with Mrs. Fati Ibrahim Attahiru, the wife of the late COAS and the spouses of the other deceased officers through her, President Buhari hailed the sacrifices of the military men who lost their lives and the Armed Forces in general, saying that Nigerians will continue to appreciate and support the fearlessness with which our courageous soldiers are confronting the threats facing the nation.

He gave the grieving spouses assurances that the nation will never forget the supreme sacrifice of their spouses, urging them to take solace in the surge of extraordinary feelings of emotions across regions, religions and tribes all over the country in appreciation of their sacrifices.

The President who had earlier given directives to the Defense headquarters and the Ministry of Defence to do everything a government can do to provide comfort and ease the hardships of the families of the deceased, prayed to Almighty God to repose their souls and grant their families the fortitude to bear the losses.

Mrs Attahiru, on behalf of the rest of the families thanked the President for the love and care he has shown to them.

  1. My question is why didnt Buhari attend the burial or the prayers for their departed souls. This man is very wicked honestly. Empathy for his own men. Won't it lower the morale of his men. Which kin GCFR be this

    1. Read somewhere that a President needs a minimum of 48hrs notice to attend any emergency function.

      This is because the necessary intelligence about the visiting location has to be collated and also the necessary security clearance obtained before the President can visit.

    2. Your head correct wella.

    3. Supervisor , when his son got into that motorcycle accident,shei it took him 48 hours to get his protocol inorder bah?rubbish

    4. They've been dead for more than 48 hours, he doesn't think he should visit them. Zero emphathy

  2. This cowtry is in a mess.

    Take heart ma'am.

  3. God rest his soul and comfort his family. What a Country!!

  4. We've seen speedier response to motorcycle accident than what occured here. This call could have happened earlier. Protocol could have been broken to at least see the widow if he could not attend the burial. All the "other" military men are seeing just how seriously the commander in chief takes the military. For all this to be happening after the president had a restful weekend and others has a colorful wedding, many more will run from bullets and bombs towards families who actually care for them.
