Presidency to Nigerians: Don’t politicise Mrs. Funke Olakunri’s tragic death

* Insecurity: Presidency urges leaders to watch their languages

The Presidency on Monday cautioned Nigerians against politicizing the tragic death of Mrs. Funke Olakunri, who is the daughter of the Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.

It also urged leaders in the country to consider their language over insecurity in the country.

The advice came the same day former President Olusegun Obasanjo came down hard on the current administration over insecurity.

But a statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and publicity, Garba Shehu, noted that insecurity is an issue that Nigeria must face together as one nation – united.

“The President has already issued a statement expressing his heartfelt condolences to the family of Mrs Funke Olakunri and followed up with a telephone call.

“The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has in addition, paid a visit to the grieving family in Akure, Ondo State.

“Her death is a tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

“It is incumbent on all leaders across the country to consider their language and its potential consequences.

“Insecurity is an issue that Nigeria must face together as one nation – united.

“Times of tragedy like these are not the time for politics.”

Politicizing it, he said, reveals only disrespect for the departed and her family.

“And we hope that those who stand in positions of influence recognise and understand this.” he added
