Amosun Honours Fallen Heroes, Commends Military
Officers and men of the Nigerian Armed Forces have, once again, been commended for their gallantry and successes so far recorded in the fight against the Boko Haram insurgency.
The commendation came, on Sunday, from the Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun.
The governor spoke with journalists shortly after inspecting a special parade in celebration of the 2017 Armed Forces Remembrance Day at the Arcade Ground, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta. The special parade comprised the Nigerian Legion, the Navy and the Nigerian Army.
While thanking the military for restoring peace in the North East region of Nigeria, Governor Amosun urged all Nigerians to live in unity irrespective of differences in gender, tribe, religion or political affiliations.
Governor Amosun along side top officers in the Military and the Paramount Rulers in the State also took turns to lay the wreath at the cenotaph in honour of slained Soldiers.
The Governor also released 57 white pigeons as a symbol of national peace with each pigeon representing the 20 Local Governments and 37 Local Council Development Areas of Ogun State.
The fallen heroes were later honoured with a 21 gun salute after which the ceremony was wrapped up with a march-out of the colour party and the rest of the Parade.
