Kano State Governor Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has said the Armed Forces Remembrance Day is an important occasion meant to remember the enormous contribution of the fallen heroes who died in the service of the nation.
According to him, the event is a tradition that has taken place every year to acknowledge the sacrifice made by our fallen heroes towards ensuring the unity and the defense of our country.
Ganduje represented by his deputy and APC Governorship Candidate Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna stated this on Sunday shortly after the parade and wreaths laying ceremony in commemoration of the Armed Forces Remembrance Day held at the Cenotaph in Kano.
“We are here to show our concern and relate with the families of the legionnaires.
“We will continue to encourage and support both serving and retired members of the Nigerian Armed Forces in their effort to keep and secure the territorial integrity of our country,” Ganduje assured.
Others who laid the wreaths include Heads of security formations in the State and senior government officials.
