Dear Armed Forces,
Paradoxically, the very democracy which you live and die to protect is abdicating unto the path of chaos. Nonetheless, though lawless, we still stand as a nation today because of your sterling services of which we are indebted. #ArmedForcesRemembranceDay pic.twitter.com/VAMNzvpnM0

It is a worthy thing that honour be bestowed on the dead & living who have given their lives on the battlefield for the unity and safety of this nation, and that we may have the heart to live right and build Nigeria.
I thank them and their families!#ArmedForcesRemembranceDay pic.twitter.com/ZIOLIZbh93
