The governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has assured the continued support of his administration to security agencies in their fight against insecurity and other forms of criminality in the state.

Ikpeazu who was represented by the Deputy Governor of the state, Dr. Ude Oko Chukwu at the Aguiyi Ironsi Cenotaph, Ogurube Layout in Umuahia the state capital to mark the 2021 Armed Forces Remembrance Day noted that members of the Nigeria Armed Forces have paid the ultimate price while ensuring lasting peace in the country.

Ikpeazu who described the theme (Paying The Supreme Price In Line Of Duty”) of this year’s celebration as apt given the security challenges and other forms of criminality that men and women of the Nigerian Armed Forces and other security agencies are contending with at the expense of their lives to defend, protect and secure the nation Nigeria and her citizens, noted that the efforts of the serving, retired and those who died in the line of duty cannot be forgotten.

“It is unarguably a fact that no day passes without news of soldiers, police men and members of other paramilitary outfits and security agencies being killed in the line of duty.

“These heroes and heroines gave their lives so that our nation and our global environment will remain peaceful, united and secured.

“The achievements of the Nigerian Legion in Abia State cannot be overemphasized, given her commitment in the training of security personnel for Churches, Schools, Banks, Government Ministries and Private Homes.

“As a security-conscious Government in Abia State, we will continue to prioritize security and will always partner the Nigerian Legion and other Security Agencies in our efforts to sustain the prevailing peace and security in the State. 

“Again, as a responsible and responsive Government, we will not relent in our commitment to always encourage and support the Nigerian Legion, Abia State Council and other Security Agencies in all areas possible within the limits of available resources in recognition and appreciation of their complementary roles in ensuring the sustenance of peace and security in the State. | 

“As part of our support and encouragement to the Nigerian Legion, the Government sometime ago provided and allocated a piece land at Ubani Ibeku for the Legion’s Permanent Secretariat and another parcel of land at Amafor Isingwu for the construction of a befitting Cenotaph as well as other needs. Let me reaffirm the commitment and determination of the Government to do more for the Nigerian Legion.”

“There is the need for all and sundry to as a mark of honour for the sacrifices of the men and women of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, show greater commitment to the unity of our nation and the task of building a greater and better society with their sacrifices and patriotism in the line of duty being uppermost in our hearts and minds. 

“Therefore let this Solemn Ceremony match our collective and individual resolve to live in peace and harmony with one another so as to begin to contribute to national and global environments where wars and conflicts of any kind will be reduced to the barest level if not completely eliminated. This will be the ultimate remembrance and perfect immortalization we can give to our past war heroes, heroines and members of our Armed Forces. 

“Revered War Veterans, Ladies and Gentlemen, the Government of the day in God’s Own State will continue to appreciate and commend the laudable efforts and commitment of the Nigerian Legion, the Nigerian Armed Forces, Paramilitary and Security Outfits to ensure Peace, Security and Unity in our Nation and Global environment.”
