SPEAKER of Anambra State House of Assembly, Uche Okafor, has lauded veteran Nigerian servicemen for their dedication and patriotism.
Okafor gave the commendation in his goodwill message to mark 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration.
He extolled their role in national security and development, describing them as crucial to the corporate existence of Nigeria.
Calling on serving security personnel in the country to emulate the team spirit and selfless service exhibited by the fallen heroes, Speaker Okafor urged them to intensify efforts towards provision of adequate security for the masses and enjoined affluent citizens to commit part of their God’s given resources to better the condition of families of the late ex-servicemen and living legionaries.
