Officers Killed In Delta Will Be Given Befitting Burial, National Honours – Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has announced that military officers who were killed by civilian youths at Okuoma in Delta State recently would be given a befitting burial and national honours.
”In responding to distress calls, they met the end of their lives in a savage manner. Let us work to sympathize and symbolize the fact that they are worth the sacrifices they have made for Nigeria.
”We salute all our men and women in uniform, and we sympathize with them. I will soon make further pronouncements, but they must have a befitting burial and national honours.”
Tinubu spoke last night, March 20, at the breaking of Ramadan Fast in Abuja with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas, and the leadership of the House.
The President expressed his heartfelt condolences to the families of the bereaved and pledged that the sacrifices of the fallen heroes would never be in vain.
President Tinubu lauded the existing cordial relationship between the executive and the legislature, saying that the harmonious working relationship had resulted in the expeditious passage of several bills to improve the welfare of Nigerians.
He asked the legislators not to forget their constituencies and to take advantage of the holy month of Ramadan to show compassion and support the less privileged in society.
”We are making sacrifices for the country, and we are assuring citizens that there is a very bright light at the end of the tunnel.
”We must have faith, and please do not forget your constituencies and remember what they are going through.
”I cannot thank you enough for what you are doing, but it is for our country. There is nothing personal about this. It is for Nigeria, and we have no other country but Nigeria.”
Responding, the Speaker of Reps emphasized the importance of forgiveness, generosity, and prayers during Ramadan and called for unity in the nation and support for President Tinubu.
