Buhari under fire for mourning Shehu Shagari

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari for mourning Alhaji Shehu Shagari, the first Executive President of Nigeria.

Imo Ugochinyere, CUPP spokesman, in a statement on Saturday, said Buhari was one of the officers who dethroned the Shagari government in 1983 and should save his condolences.

“President Shagari was a democrat who believed in the supremacy of the power of the people and only succumbed to the barrel of the gun of people who did not and still do not believe in the tenets of democracy and the supremacy of the rule of law.

“We however urge President Muhammadu Buhari to keep his tributes in honour of Alhaji Shehu Shagari.

“Nigeria shall overcome this loss by the special grace of God and democracy will once again not fail in our time.”
