VP Osinbajo: General Attahiru, others’ death shows depth of military sacrifice
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is to meet soon with representatives of state governors, the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, and the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, in an attempt to resolve the disagreement over the repayment of the budget support facility obtained by the states.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has noted that the death of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru and others in Friday’s air crash shows the depth of sacrifice of the military.

Expressing shock and sadness at the occurrence, Osinbajo said in a statement issued by his spokesman, Laolu Akande, on Saturday that “their death while in active service in the defense of our country reflects the depth of sacrifice our military officers, men and women of the other ranks are often prepared to make.”

The statement quoted the Vice President as saying: “I received with great sadness the news of an air crash involving the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Ibrahim Attahiru, and other officers of the Nigerian military yesterday.

“Their death while in active service in the defense of our country reflects the depth of sacrifice our military officers, men and women of the other ranks are often prepared to make. We honour the service of the Army Chief and all those involved in this unfortunate accident even as we continue to demonstrate our profound appreciation to all in our military services and in harm’s way. The gallantry of these heroes would always be remembered.

“I join the President and Commander in Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces to commiserate with families, friends and colleagues of these gallant officers and men who died in the crash. I pray that God grants them the fortitude to bear the loss. May the memories of the departed remain ever blessed.”
