Armed Forces Remembrance Day: COAS Felicitates With Officers

The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya has felicitated with officers, soldiers and their families on the occasion of the 2022 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration (AFRDC)

This is contained in a statement issued by the Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu.

The Army Chief recalled that many of the fallen heroes laid down their lives during the First and Second World Wars, Nigerian Civil War, Peace Support Operations across the globe and various Internal Security Operations, including the ongoing fight against insurgency, terrorism, banditry and secessionism, amongst other threats to national security.

He maintained that their sacrifices would never be forgotten and prayed for the repose of their souls.

He stressed that many of the veterans regrettably sustained varying degrees of injuries in the course of their service to the nation and humanity. He added that care for the injured and maimed personnel will remain a cardinal focus under his command.

While appreciating troops for their sacrifices in achieving success across all spectrum of operations conducted by the Nigerian Army(NA), he urged them not to relent but to sustain and consolidate on the successes recorded so far.

The COAS called on officers and soldiers of the NA to be loyal to constituted authority and ensure greater collaboration and synergy with sister Services and other Security Agencies in the pursuit of peace and security in Nigeria.

He equally used the medium to reaffirm the unalloyed loyalty of the NA under his watch to the President, Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari and the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration is organized annually in recognition of the fallen heroes; gallant men and women, who paid the supreme price in the defence of peace, unity and prosperity of Nigeria.
