Nigeria Commemorates Armed Forces Remembrance Day

On this solemn Armed Forces Remembrance Day, Nigerians across the nation unite in expressing gratitude and admiration for the unwavering commitment and sacrifices made by the country’s military personnel.

The Presidency post on X emphasises the significance of honouring the sacrifices, commitment, and dedication of the servicemen and women who have answered the national call to serve and protect Nigeria.

The day serves as a poignant reminder of the nation’s collective responsibility to appreciate and support those who safeguard its security.

Also, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 General elections, Peter Obi, acknowledged the selfless dedication of the armed forces in ensuring peace and security within the borders of Nigeria.

The statement posted on X emphasizes the need for the military to remain resolute in the face of the ongoing challenges posed by insecurity. It particularly pays tribute to the fallen heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defence of the nation’s peace, unity, and territorial integrity.

The call is not only to remember but to honour these heroes and offer support to their grieving families.

Highlighting the crucial role of the military in nation-building, Obi’s statement underscores that great nations are forged through the collaborative efforts of leaders, citizens, and the guardians of freedom – the military.

It recognizes the sacrifices that take servicemen away from the comfort of their homes and loved ones, emphasizing that the nation’s story is incomplete without their courageous contributions.

In the context of Nigeria facing formidable challenges such as terrorism, violence, and various forms of insecurity, the statement extends solidarity and support to the military.

Obi urges them to stay resilient even in the most challenging times, emphasizing the importance of leaders ensuring the well-being of the armed forces and their families.
