The governor appreciated the theme for the year 2017 Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration, which is, “Appreciating the Resilience of the Nigerian Armed Forces.”

“Since they served Nigeria diligently, we should as a matter of responsibility make sure they are not allowed to suffer or regret the services they rendered to their fatherland,” Governor Amosun said.
