Buhari launches Armed Forces Remembrance emblem with N10m

By - - [ ]

President Muhammadu Buhari has launched the 2019 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration Emblem with N10m. The celebration is marked annually on January 15.

Launching the emblem at the State House, Abuja yesterday, he appealed to political actors to be decorous in their conduct and utterances in order not to fan the embers of disunity.

“Let us put Nigeria first and realise that in every contest there must be one winner,” he said.

He said the celebration was a painful reminder of the perils of war and the need for the nation to avoid a recurrence.

“The celebration forcefully reminds us of the resolve of our citizens to remain in one united country, Nigeria.

“It also points out the fact that we had been through a bitter and unfortunate war that led to the loss of millions of our compatriots and the need to do all within our powers to avoid a reoccurrence of war,” he said.

He appreciated the gallantry and sacrifices of the Nigerian Armed Forces in the campaign against insurgency and other internal security operations.

While noting that the efforts of the armed forces have led to the return of normalcy in affected parts of the country, he regretted the recent murder of two aid workers – SaifuraKhorsa and HauwaLiman – by Boko Haram terrorists.

Pledging that the resettlement and rehabilitation of citizens affected by the war on terror will continue, he commended the Dangote Foundation for its partnership with Government in the rebuilding process in Borno State.

He called on other corporate organisations to borrow a leaf from Dangote Foundation, saying government alone cannot satisfy all the needs, given her limited resources.

On the Bill to amend the Nigerian Legion Act to a proposed “Veterans Federation of Nigeria” Act, the President urged the 8th National Assembly to give the proposed legislation, which seeks to ensure proper welfare and health condition of military veterans, quick attention.

He called on all Nigerians and others resident in Nigeria to procure and wear the emblems with pride to identify with those who laid down their lives for peace and security of our fatherland.

The President was accompanied to the event by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, members of the Federal Executive Council, Chief of Defence Staff, General AbayomiOlonisakin, service chiefs and the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, senior officers and veterans.
