Crowd at Abba Kyari’s burial: FG most apologize to Funke Akindele – Nigerians

Crowd at Abba Kyaris burial FG most apologize to Funke Akindele Nigerians

Much loved Nigerian actress Funke Akindele-Bello is currently trending on social media, following the burial ceremony of President Muhammadu Buhari’s chief of staff, Abba Kyari, who recently passed away.

The government official who died on Friday, April 17, was laid to rest during the early hours of Saturday, April 18, according to Muslim rites, and a large gathering at the burial site has caused an outrage on social media.

Disgruntled Nigerians berated the federal government for allowing the gathering of so many people at the venue, despite the fact that the president had legalized the quarantine act, which prohibits citizens from holding large gatherings in a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Nigerians were quick to remind the FG that Funke Akindele was only recently convicted for organizing a birthday party for her husband in their Lagos home, yet government officials have openly flouted the same rule she was convicted for.

Many submitted that the FG owes the Nollywood actress and her husband an apology. They also noted that a lot of Nigerians leaders are hypocrites who are comfortable with breaking the same laws that they make to keep things in order.

“Funke Akindele was arrested and arraigned for throwing a party in her house. Some politicians decided to organise a prayer session, hereby breaching the Presidential order & @NCDCgov guideline on social distancing, but no action will be taken because ‘proximity to power?” a Twitter user wrote.
