Herbert Wigwe’s daughter blasted for not standing to greet VP Shettima at her parents’ funeral

Herbert Wigwe’s daughter, Tochi Wigwe has been blasted on X for not standing to greet Vice president, Kashim Shettima.

Tochi Wigwe, the eldest daughter of Herbert Wigwe, faces backlash on social media for not standing to greet Vice President, Kashim Shettima.

This happened during an event organized to mourn the tragic loss of her father, the banking mogul Herbert Wigwe, her mother, and her brother in a recent helicopter crash.

A Twitter user, who identified Tochi in a photo accepting a handshake while seated from the vice president, expressed his disapproval saying that she lacked proper home training.

He then went further to contrast photos of former Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and businessman Aliko Dangote, who were seen standing while shaking hands with Shettima at the same event.

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.”

However, some sympathetic social media users defended Tochi against the backlash stating inbher defense that the grief of losing her family might be the cause.

Some argued that the mourning daughter’s actions should not be hastily interpreted as a lack of respect.

@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.
