The Presidency has given an important reason why the pigeons did not fly on the Armed Forces remembrance day. The Armed Forces remembrance day happens on the 15th of January every year in Nigeria.
Recall the 15th of January, 2021 when it was the Armed Forces remembrance day in Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari was then trying to release the pigeons, but unfortunately, they didn’t fly.
With that, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adeshina reveals the reason why Pigeons were not able to fly on the Armed Forces Remembrance Day in Nigeria.
Femi Adeshina made that known one of his articles titled: “Reflections From A Wreath Laying Ceremony.”
Femi Adeshina made known that the Pidgeons were unable to fly because they have been kept in a cage for a long time.
“When birds and some other roaming animals have been circumscribed for a while, they get accustomed to their new status as lawful captives. Therefore, when you offer them freedom, they first balk, thinking it’s too good to be true. It’s a natural phenomenon.”
“President Buhari opened the cage that held the pigeons, about a score or so. One hesitated, then flew, followed by another.
“The others temporized a bit. And then, two, three minutes later, they all took to the sky. Nothing extraordinary in the development, you should think.
Femi Adeshina then continued throwing some shades at some social media users who escalated the whole issue.
“But not to the idle and indolent, most of who populate the social media. It was time to major in something minor, cavil, find fault unnecessarily. The pigeons didn’t fly, they refused to fly, it’s ominous, they wailed like wailing wailers.
“And you began to wonder: are people this idle? Don’t they have productive things to do with their times? Are their minds so addled, and all they want to do is find faults against their President, ascribing spiritual connotations to a non-issue?
“For their information: Muhammadu Buhari has no time for such frivolities. He just continues to serve the country with his heart and mind, trying to make a difference in security, economy, and anti-corruption. And he will get there by the grace of God. But if they don’t change, the wailers will be losers, standing small.”
