President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila who graced the event had laid wreaths during the Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration on Friday in Abuja.
Here are some comments DAILY POST gathered.
@IsimonB, “There’s no peace in Nigeria. There’s no progress being made. And there’s no harmony among us. So the pigeons refused to fly. Unbothered and unhinged, Buhari didn’t hesitate to leave the birds. Like he does with Nigeria and Nigerians.”
@Vogunsi, “ I once said that the gods are angry with this administration. You can see the signs already with the pigeons.”
@Lucasscot101, “If the pigeons had flown from his hands, this government would have named it as one of their achievement.“
@Duruchubuzor, “Today una go lay wreath down, tomorrow una go use una hand lay innocent lives to waste. The pigeons developed stroke and refused to fly in the same country. God is still saying something.”
@Oldcovenant, “Bad omen!!! It’s unheard of that a pigeon inside a cage refused to fly even when the cage was open.Or maybe, they are afraid of kidnappers.”
@dondekojo, “The pigeons said there’s no peace I believe them.”
@Oloye, “Pigeons always fly. If they don’t, something is really wrong. And something is really wrong. A lot of things are really wrong.”
@Alphabigforreal, “There is a lesson behind this, as pigeon is set free from captive and refused to flee. To me, what it connotes is that it enjoys feeding while in captive or bandage, and what will it be eating if it sets free?
Exactly the same situation Nigerians are today with present govt.”
