The doves, otherwise known as white pigeons, released by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), at the Armed Forces Remembrance Day ceremony, refused to fly despite multiple attempts by the President thereby sparking a debate on social media on Friday.

The President had opened the birdcage at the National Arcade, picked up one of the doves, and thrown it into the air but the bird landed atop the cage and refused to fly.

Buhari, who was eager to let the white pigeons fly, opened the roof of the cage in a bid to send them all out but the birds remained adamant and decided to sit on top of the cage’s roof.

The President, who appeared tired of trying, soon left the birds and returned to his seat. Moments after the President had left, however, some of the birds flew.

The ritual of releasing doves is to commemorate the life of a departed loved one and is common at significant events like funerals or memorials. It also signifies peace.

Studies show that domesticated doves which are used to living in cages are not always keen on flying.

The Vatican stopped the ritual in 2014 when Pope Francis released two birds that would not fly out of the window of the papal apartment and required several attempts to get the birds to fly out over a crowd of spectators.

A similar incident occurred just the year prior at an event where Pope Benedict XVI released doves during a Holocaust remembrance event. The doves were attacked by a gull, with one dove being singled out and injured, according to Wikipedia.

In 2014, the doves refused to fly when former President Goodluck Jonathan freed them. The Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry Enugu, Rev Fr. Ejike Mbaka, described the incident at the time as a sign that God had abandoned Jonathan.

The refusal of the birds to fly on Friday, however, sparked thousands of comments on social media.

A former presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, Adamu Garba, said the birds should be eaten if they cannot do what they were trained to do.

“The pigeons are tired and overtime became lazy, they don’t want to fly the spirit of The Nigerian Flag. We should roast them at Suya joint and deploy Crowwe for action,” he said.

Social media personality, Morris Monye, said the Department of State Services would have arrested the pigeons for embarrassing the President if they could.

“I guarantee you… If it was possible, the DSS would arrest the pigeons for such an affront on the President. But really, is there peace, harmony, and security in the land?” he asked.

A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, who is a known critique of the President, also tweeted, “Hmmm. Even the pigeons in Nigeria.”

How would the pigeons flew when they know say the person telling them to fly isn't the followcome president Nigerians voted into power in 2015
.
The pigeons knew that the president we all voted in 2015 didnt have hole in his neck region but the president that was handed to us in 2017 after a sudden trip from a certain country (Nigerians cannot can) suddenly appeared looking fresh with a visible hidden hole in is neck region.

After killing Endsars protesters you expects the doves of peace to fly abi?it's like a man begging his ex-jilted girlfriend to be his chief bridesmaid on the day of his wedding.

Sha we shall see what we wee do about the pigeons.


who know sef welder the pigeons don even eat sef...Cox na pigeons wey don eat go see strength to take flight.

How can you expect the pigeon to fly?

--When Nigerians are daily slaughtered like animals by Boko Haram
--When Nigerians are being kidnapped daily by Bandits
--When Cultists are raping Nigerian ladies on daily bases
--When Fulani Herdsmen are killing farmers daily
--When Buhari keep causing hardship daily


Pigeon sef is feeling the heat. The so called army that fought in the war are ashamed in their graves and wondering if they took the right decision.
You cannot die fighting for a country that will turn out to be useless and still be happy in your grave.

I can see that even the birds of the air knows how terrible Buhari has failed Nigerians. I see that despite the efforts of the paid commenter the birds chose not to compromise their stand. I see that doves are pure birds and therefore cannot be bribed or corrupted. This I have seen.

Whichever way, shildren of 8, anger, frustration and perdition must register their frustrated inconsequential existence.

If the bird had flown, they will say it is running away from Buhari.

Now, the bird prefered to remain with him, they say it is because it hate him, how?

Una go cry till 2023.

Ipob pigs are brainless animals.

The message is clear.

The narrator mentioned it. Any white signifies peace. So peace is not in peace with Buhari or the birds refused to fly to symbolise peaceful presence in the country. He should have used black vultures.
