Armed Forces Day: Katsina govt hails military on security

Joining other well-meaning Nigerians to mark Armed Forces and Remembrance Day celebration, the Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere has hailed the Armed Forces for their patriotic efforts towards safeguarding and protecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the federal republic of Nigeria.

The event held at the Dr Alex Ekwueme Square, Awka.

"As we mark the 2018 Armed Forces Remembrance Day, let us do not forget to always show genuine appreciation to gallant men and women who deprived themselves of so much so that we may have this nation, Nigeria".

An army source who spoke to some journalists on condition of anonymity said the victims might have been affected by what he called "sun-stroke", resulting from heavy sunshine.

"We forever remain indebted to them, and want to use this occasion to say thank you for your sacrifice for all Nigerians", Dogara stated.

Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra on Monday urged Nigerians to remember the families of the nation's fallen heroes and pray for the souls of the departed.

Obiano said that the military had done much to keep the nation one, adding "but for the internal and external wars these fallen heroes have fought, we would not have been enjoying the peace we have now".

Chairman of the Nigeria Legion in Anambra State, Major Nwankwo Ifeanyichukwu, Rtd, called for a better welfare for members of the legion.

He said it was worrisome that despite the contributions of the retired and dead military men, their families were still passing through harrowing economic experience due to poor remuneration.
