NGO honours 20 ex-war veterans for contributing to nation building

By Ezra Musa
Kaduna –  A Non-Governmental Organisation, Womanhood Foundation of Nigeria, on Monday, honoured 10 soldiers and 10 Air force personnel “for their selfless service and contributions to nation building.”

The Director of the organisation, Maryam Abubakar, made this known in Kaduna.

She told newsmen that “the Nigerian Army is the reason why we are living in peace and harmony in this country and that is why our organisation decided to honour some ex-war veterans.

“The honour is because of the selfless service of the ex-veterans aimed at uniting Nigerians.”

Abubakar added that most of the ex-servicemen participated in international peace missions, wars and
were involved in settling communal and ethno-religious crises in different parts of the world.

“They had contributed immensely to the return of peace and harmony in many war ravaged countries
and defended the image of the country.”

She called on Federal Government to give scholarship to children of the fallen heroes and free medical treatment to their families.

Responding on behalf of the ex-servicemen, warrant officer Yusuf Usman, thanked Federal Government and the NGO for remembering them and urged other NGOs to improve their activities of humanitarian assistance.

Yusuf congratulated the Nigerian Army in the battle with Boko Haram insurgents in the North East and urged Civil Society Organisations, Federal Government and well-meaning individuals to assist
the retired war veterans and their families.

The Federal Government on Monday marked the annual Armed Forces Remembrance Day to recognise and honour the fallen heroes who contributed to Nigeria’s unity. (NAN)
