Indeed “She lacks home training” – Late Wigwe’s daughter faces backlash for sitting to greet VP Shettima at her parents’ funeral

Tochi Wigwe, Herbert Wigwe’s eldest daughter, got criticism on Twitter for not rising to meet Vice President Kashim Shettima.

The incident occurred during a memorial service for her father, banking billionaire Herbert Wigwe, her mother, and her brother, who were killed in a helicopter crash.

The Twitter user, who recognized Tochi in a photo receiving a handshake while seated, criticized her conduct, claiming that she lacked sufficient home instruction.

The tweet received notice by featuring contrasting photographs of former Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and industrialist Aliko Dangote at the same event, both standing and shaking hands with Shettima.

In the post, the user wrote: “Same Man, different regard. Whoever that girl is, she lacks proper home training. You don’t shake a person old enough to be your father while sitting down.”

The criticism went beyond the original user, with several Twitter users in the North also denouncing Tochi Wigwe’s apparent lack of respect and good manners.

However, the criticism of Tochi Wigwe has not gone unnoticed.

Many social media users defended her, emphasizing that sorrow manifests differently in various people.

Some claimed that the mourning daughter’s acts should not be seen as disrespectful.

@Emy said; “In this context, i wont hold it against her. Maybe, she is just there but her mind is somewhere else. Alot is going through her mind right now. No mother nor Father or even brother to console her. She is just there on by herself grieving inside. Maybe she might not even want to be there if not that the situation warrants it. Dont forget some people are introverts by nature. so they don really flow with the crowd.
