Buhari mourns Pharaoh Okadigbo
PRP rues absence of President, others at CoAS burial
President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the family of the former President of the Senate, the late Chuba Okadigbo, on the death of their son, Pharaoh Okadigbo.
Buhari said it was very sad to lose such a promising young man with so much potentials and passion for youth involvement in the socio-political development of Nigeria.
He noted that the late Pharaoh at an early age keyed into the vision of a better Nigeria not just for the privileged but for all and sundry, which he (the President) shared with the late Chuba, who was his running mate in the 2003 presidential election.
IN another development, the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has lamented the conspicuous absence of the President and others during the funeral of the late Chief of Army Staff (CoAS), Lt.-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru and other officers killed in a military aircraft accident in Kaduna.
The party also expressed sadness over the absence of the Vice President, Senate President and Speaker House of Representatives at the occasion held at the military cemetery in Abuja.
PRP’s National Chairman, Alhaji Falalu Bello, in a statement, said that the development spoke volume that those entrusted with the leadership of the country lacked empathy for the people they govern, particularly for those that risk their lives for the security and stability of our nation.
