Reno Omokri expressed his disappointment in President Buhari and the governors for not attending the late Chief of Army Staff's funeral.

Reno opined that people who serve Nigeria and put their lives on the line for the country are not being honoured under Buhari's administration.

Reno also stated that Boko Haram members are more motivated than Nigerian troops because their leadership shows deep concern for every one of their members.

Omokri took to his Twitter handle to call out President Buhari for not attending the funeral of the Chief of Army Staff, Ibrahim Attahiru, and officers who perished in a military crash on Friday, May 21.

According to Reno, if President Buhari could fly to Paris to attend a function, he should have made it to the funeral of the military officers who lost their lives during service.

"General died in service for Nigeria, and our President and Governors did not attend his funeral in Abuja. But our Governors were able to attend the wedding of the son of the Attorney General of Nigeria today. What is the benefit of fighting and dying for Nigeria?

"Seeing as General Attahiru and his colleagues died in service of Nigeria, General @MBuhari ought to have declared at least 3 days of national mourning, with flags flying at half mast. It is very sad to see 5 Governors and multiple ministers partying in Kano today," he wrote.
