The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen. Lucky Irabor, has praised members of the Nigerian Armed Forces for their great performance in maintaining the country’s safety and security in 2021. On Saturday in Abuja, Irabor issued the compliment in his new year address to soldiers operating in various theaters and members of the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN).
On Saturday, the statement was delivered to journalists by Air Commodore Wap Maigida, the Acting Director of Defence Information.
The CDS praised the nation’s military forces for their dedication, tenacity, endurance, courage, and valor in keeping the country safe and secure.
He said the troops had also displayed uncommon resilience and courage in the face of danger while surmounting the myriad of security threats bedeviling the country.
“In-retrospect, the end of 2021 affords the AFN unique opportunity to remember the sacrifices of its men and women who work in extreme conditions in trenches, in fields and in far-flung places away from the comfort of their loved ones to keep Nigerians safe and secure.
“The AFN has continued to discharge its constitutional mandate of maintaining the territorial integrity of our nation, suppressing insurrection and acting in aid of civil authority to restore order when called upon to do so.
“This is in the light of violent, irregular, complex, and manifestations of contemporary as well as evolving national security challenges,” he said.
Irabor said that the federal government was committed towards providing the essential requirements for the operation of the armed forces.
President Muhammadu Buhari recently reaffirmed his unshakable commitment and support for the AFN, he said.
The AFN committed its allegiance to the president and the constitution, and the defense commander urged personnel to maintain esprit de corps in the performance of their responsibilities at all times.
He also paid honor to the departed warriors, notably Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, the late former Chief of Army Staff.
According to him, the AFN will never forget their sacrifices in accordance with the spirit and text of the National Anthem, and that their efforts will not be in vain.
In addition, the CDS congratulated AFN member’s good health, happiness, and prosperity in 2022.
