He said the country would continue to remember the heroic exploits of members of the Armed Forces and continue to pray for the repose of the souls of those that paid the supreme price defending Nigeria.

The President also assured that the welfare and comfort of the families of the fallen heroes, as well as those who are still alive, would continue to get the priority of the government.
