President Mohammadu Buhari has launched the 2016 Armed Forces Remembrance Emblem at the council chamber of the presidential Villa.


He also said that Nigerians and visitors to the country may be required to wear the 2016 Armed Forces Remembrance Emblem as pass for entry into all government establishments.


He said the practice was necessary to recognize the feats recorded by the Nation’s living and fallen heroes in keeping the country together since independence.


He also announced a donation of N10 million in support of the cause, noting that consequent upon the efforts of veterans, Nigeria as a country had weathered through many storms which ordinarily should have prompted a disintegration.


The ceremony was witnessed by the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; former Head of the Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed among a host of ministers.


“Today’s occasion reminds us of the need to appreciate the noble contributions of our fallen heroes who paid the supreme sacrifice to maintain national and international peace and security.


“Our nation has recently celebrated 55 years of political independence and continues to remain as one indivisible entity despite several grevious challenges. Since independence, Nigeria has witnessed a lot of internal strife, survived a civil war and has remained united,” Buhari said.
