Rivers State Governor, NYESOM WIKE, has hailed Nigerian Armed Forces personnel for their commitment to safeguarding the sovereignty of the country and ensuring internal peace.
Governor WIKE said this at Saint Paul’s Anglican Church in Port Harcourt during the interdenominational Church Service marking the 2021Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebrations.
WIKE said the one-off contributions made on such remembrance day was never enough to cater for those who have suffered injuries while defending the country or the families left behind late soldiers.
The Governor also advocated that the Government unveil concrete plans for families of military personnel.
In a sermon, Bishop of Diocese of Niger Delta, Right Reverend WISDOM IHUNWO called on leaders in Nigeria to be like Jesus Christ who came to earth, fulfilled the dictates of his manifestos without distraction.
