Tinubu’ll attend burial of 17 soldiers unlike Buhari who failed in 2018, 2021 – Presidency



The Presidency has confirmed that President Bola Tinubu will attend the burial ceremony of 17 military personnel killed in Delta State.

Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, said unlike former President Muhammadu Buhari who failed to attend burial of slain soldiers in 2021 and 2018, Tinubu will be attending.

In a post on his X handle on Wednesday, Onanuga said it will be the first time a President would be paying the last respect to soldiers killed in service in the last 10 years.

“It is confirmed that President Bola Tinubu will be attending the national burial for the Nigerian military officers and soldiers killed on 14 March by some gunmen in Okuama community in Delta State.


“It is the first time in the last ten years that a Nigerian President will attend such a solemn event, in honour of our men of gallantry and valor.

“Two other burials in 2021 and 2018 were not graced by the incumbent. We told you then that @officialABAT cares. He is demonstrating it yet again,” Onanuga said in the post.

Tinubu had earlier mentioned last week that there would be a befitting burial for the 17 soldiers who were killed while on a peacekeeping mission in Delta State.
