From Umar Danladi Ado, Sokoto
Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State has observed that with the security challenges that the country is facing on many fronts, it has become necessary for all citizens to rally round President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the situation is brought under control.
Governor Tambuwal made the assertion at the presentation of the 2021 Armed Forces Remembrance Day emblem to him at the Government House, Sokoto.
“We must not play politics with the security situation in the country. We must all face this problem together and commit Nigeria into prayer as well as support the president to engender peace,” the governor said.
He reassured that his administration is committed to the welfare of the families of all ex-servicemen.
According to him, the ceremony, which signaled the commencement of next year’s celebration, is in line with the directives of the Federal Government to commemorate fallen heroes who fell in the line of duty, as it is usually observed annually.
“We will observe all events including prayers in Mosques and Churches,” the governor added.
Presenting the emblem to the governor, the chairman of the state chapter of the Nigeria Legion, Assistant Controller General (retired) Aliyu Abdullahi Danchadi, said the occasion kicked off earlier as a result of the zeal and commitment of Governor Tambuwal.
