Must you complain about everything?A governor with his wife was there,a minister was there,senators were there,high ranking military officials were there,the ceremony was grand.What else do you want?I believe when you mistakenly throw saliva on your body you'll still blame it on the President.
PS:He's in Mali for an official visit as at the time of her burial ceremony.

WHY THE RUSH TO BURIED HER ? NOW, THIS IS THE END OF HER ROAD. THE JIHADIST KILLED HER.

HOW MANY YORUBAS SPEAK OUT ON THE KILLING OF THEIR DAUGHTER ?

WHAT A PEOPLE, NOT EVEN ONE, NOR THE OBAS AND JAGABAS.
