Remember Armed Forces, other security agents in prayer – Ambassador Fatile Urges Nigerians
Nigerians have been urged to remember the Armed Forces and other security agencies in prayers during this festive period.
The need for the reminder, according to the Convener, Prayer and Support For the Nigerian Armed Forces and other Security agencies PSNAFSA, Ambassador Mary Abayomi -Fatile became necessary following the doggedness with which terrorism and other violent crimes in Nigeria are being tackled.
She spoke at a press conference in the Ikeja area of Lagos.
Ambassador Fatile noted “Come rain, come shine, these people are there. As I speak, these military personnel are in the bushes, jungles and creeks protecting us and the nation’s assets. Some of them have not gone home for years, let alone seeing their loved ones”.
The Convener, therefore, appealed to Nigerians to always show love rather than castigating and criticising them,
Fatile said, “It will be nice to also extend the love to the personnel’s extended family.
” In the United States of America, security agents are celebrated and honoured” she stated.
She expressed condolence to traditional rulers and people of the Tudun Boris community in the Igabi Local Government area of Kaduna State, who lost their loved ones. In an emotionally laden tone Fatile, said, the Lord Almighty will comfort them and heal the wounded ones. “Affliction of such will never arise again”.
Ambassador Fatile, appreciated the Chief of Defence Staff, CDS General Christopher Musa and the Service Chiefs for their good work in the onslaught against insurgency since they assumed office, expressing optimism that with the efforts put in place, insecurity would be addressed
