“I also want to use this opportunity to honour those who have paid the supreme price while in active service of our Motherland.

“We owe it to them to ensure that their sacrifice was not in vain.  We also owe it to ourselves to become better at our craft, in terms of the quality of our equipment, personnel and training.

“To this end, the Armed Forces of Nigeria is making concerted efforts to acquire new platforms and equipment,’’ he added.
