nig-armyPresident Muhanmmadu Buhari has applauded the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces in ensuring that Nigeria remains one indivisible and strong nation, stressing that such sacrifices are not in vain.
Buhari also added that the Nigerian military did not just make sacrifice for its country but also in other nations of the world.
President Buhari stated this in Abuja yesterday during an interdenominational church service organized for the 2016 Armed Forces Remembrance Day.
Represented by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, President Buhari expressed gratitude to God for protecting the country and keeping all Nigerians together to see another year.
He said, “Today, we remember members of our armed forces, who have paid the supreme sacrifice in ensuring that Nigeria is one. We are grateful to God who has protected our nation and kept us all together to see a new year. Our military has contributed not just in keeping Nigeria one but have also contributed to several foreign missions. Today, the Nigeria’s military is top ten in contributing to peacekeeping to the United Nations and top five in Africa’s peacekeeping missions.
“Their remarkable effort in curbing insurgency in North-East is commendable. Today, Boko Haram would no longer claim to hold sway in any part of the North-East region and we are confident that very soon, Boko Haram will be a thing of the past. We are grateful to our military and we are confident and pray that with God on our side, our military will not only defeat the insurgents but will continue to perform its statutory role.
Buhari encouraged Nigerians renew their determination to live as one, strong and united nation. “Today, we remember families of our fallen heroes, their wives, children and relations. No one can stand your pains but today the nation commends you and your endurance,” he added.
