BBOG co-founder Bukky Shonibare criticises Buhari for not attending the funeral of slain soldiers

Co-founder of Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) advocacy group, Bukky Shonibare has criticized President Buhari for not attending the funeral of Nigerian military personnel killed by Boko Haram terrorist but instead chose to be in Edo State, where he commissioned key projects of Governor Adams Oshiomhole administration.

In a series of tweets, Ms Shonibare described Buhari's action as a missed opportunity to communicate that Nigeria has a President that really cares. More tweets after the cut.

Let's be objective sometimes and put our differences aside. He sent a representative, aside that his wife and daughter were there. What else do we want him to do? BBOG are now becoming attention seekers. They have not even condole d families of d fallen heros but here they are criticising PMB. Enough of this senseless pls...

This Shonibare should shut up! If she is ignorant, she should ask questions. Buhari went to Edo State on a two day working visit to commission projects. He did go there to play. People are so jobless these days that they run to social media and write nonsense without carrying out proper investigation. Rubbish!

How does Buhari's presence bring the dead back to life? Talk is cheap. Buhari is one person and cannot be everywhere at thesame time. This is why he appointed people working for him like the vice president, chief of defence staff, ministers etc. Moreover, Buhari was in Edo State to commission large projects completed by Oshiomole. He didnt go there for Oshiomole's party. Get your facts right pleeeeeese!!!

Buhari was even late for his own daughter's wedding that recently took place in Daura. He was very busy in Aso Rock attending to other crucial matters before he went for his daughter's wedding and he arrived very late at night after everything was almost over. So what is this foolish Shonibare woman talking about? Are you to dictate to Buhari on how to run his affairs? Buhari attends the general event to honour falling soldiers on the 15th of January every year. He doesnt miss it. If he continues attending every funeral of each soldier, do you think he will have time to focus on the economy of Nigeria. Shonibare your comments are senseless, baseless and stupid. Pleaae go and have a life!

A day is set aside on the 15th of January every year to honour our soldiers and Buhari always attends. These are not the first set of soldiers killed. If Buhari attends this particular one, it is these same people that will still criticise Buhari for attending this particular one without attending others. He would be seen as being partial. These soldiers fought for all of us and the chibok girls. They did not fight for only Buhari. So what stops BBOG from attending the funeral too? It shows that BBOG is only bothered about the chibok girls. They are not bothered about the lives of the soldiers. If not, BBOG would have been represented at the funeral just as Buhari was represented since he had other jobs to do. In fact, Nigerians especially in the North East, would have attended because the soldiers protected them too not just Buhari.

Bucky Shonibare you are very stupid for this senseless and misguided comments. Let Buhari be!

The bible says: let the dead bury the dead. Move on with your life. Buhari being there will not bring them back to life. This is the bitter truth. Also, Buhari wasnt in Edo State to play. He has already committed himself to attend the commissioning of projects in Edo State before the soldiers died and you cannot expect him to cancel all the appointments just like that because they had a whole line up of events in Edo State for Mr President. He is still going to honour all the soldiers that died on the 15th of January. So what is the fuss about?

Sir, take it easy. He sent a representative, one kyari... don't know d other name.

Other soldiers from the East, the West and the South have also died but Buhari didnt attend their funeral. If Buhari attends this particular funeral, it is these same people that will criticise him that he attended this one because Northerners are involved. Linda posted a picture of a soldiers from Edo State that died on this blog sometime back and Buhari didnt attend his funeral. If Buhari attends this particular one, it is these same critics that will say Buhari's attendance is lopsided and selective. The federal government has set a date for the 15th of January every year to mourn these soldiers and Buhari always attends including all governors. So please Shonibare should go and sit down joor

These are not the only soldiers that have died. Many soldiers have died in the past that Buhari didnt attend their funeral. So why is Bucky Shonibare picking out these particular soldiers and making unecessary noise about it? Are you trying to saying that these particular soldiers are more special than others that have died and layed their lives down to protect all of us? Please be reasonable

I thought the 15th of January of every year is set aside to mourn all these soldiers which Buhari will be fully involved.

@Anonymous 8:06AM if somebody calls your mother and daughter a bitch, how would you feel? Mr President normally mourns all soldiers on the 15 of January every year. So why are you tearing your pant here?

You that is accusing Buhari, what has BBOG done for the falling soldiers that lost their lives because they were looking for the chibok girls? Hypocrites1

Any slight opportunity, they must criticise Buhari. Una no dey tire? Elections are over!

Madam BBOG or whatever you call yourself, Buhari already booked appointment with Edo State government on a two day working visit before the soldiers died. He never planned for the soldiers to die or have knowledge that the soldiers were going to die. So you cannot expect him to just cancel all his appointments just like that. Buhari cannot attending all events at thesame time because he is not God. That is why vice presidents and ministers are appointed to represent him in times like this due to circumstances beyound his control. BBOG is sitting in the comfort of their homes behind social media accusing Buhari of not attending. What about BBOG? Why were they not represented at the funeral? Afterall, these soldiers lay down their lives for the chibok girls that you represent. You BBOG are also insensitive for not attending or even sending a representative. We need to be reasonable and objective with our comments. Buhari has tried in the fight to bring back these girls. All he needs is encouragement to do more in terms of security instead of criticising him at the slightest giving opportunity. His is human and not a magician please!
