Soldiers killed in Okuama to receive national honors and befitting burial – President Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has announced plans by the Federal government to confer National Honors on the seventeen military personnel killed in Okuama, a community in Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta Statelast week.


The President disclosed this at the breaking of the Ramadan fast with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas, and the leadership of the House on Wednesday, March 20. 


The President said while oversight is essential for maintaining transparency and accountability in governance, excessive summoning of officials can disrupt operations and hinder service delivery to citizens. He, therefore, urged lawmakers to show discretion in the exercise of their oversight functions.

“The baby step being taken by our country is doing well. The sacrifices we have made and we ask the people to continue to make, assuring them that there is a very bright light at the end of the tunnel.


All you have to do is to have faith. Pls don’t forget your constituencies, remember what they are going through. We salute all our men and women in uniform and we sympathise with them.


I will soon make further pronouncements. They must have a befitting burial and they must have national honour.”
