Memorial Service For Nelson Mandela at the Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja

Posted in: , ,

Someone said Goodluck Jonathan was Nigeria's Mandela which I think is ill advised, as only history will prove that. President Jonathan himself who was in Paris when news of Mandela's death was announced was more officious. He declared three days of national mourning with flags to be flown at half mast, which was fitting considering the historical ties between Nigeria and South Africa, and Nelson Mandela n particular. The three days culminated in a memorial service for the late Mandela held yesterday at the Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja. Mandela will be buried in SA, December 15. May his soul rest in peace.
