Buhari condoles with families of soldiers who died securing Nigeria

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, has expressed his condolence to the families of members of Nigeria’s Armed Forces, who lost their lives in various military operations to keep the country secure.
Mr. Buhari, a former Head of State and retired General of the Nigerian Army, said his condolence goes to the families who lost loved ones since the Armed Forces were established including the current battle going on with insurgents in North Eastern part of Nigeria.

“May their gentle souls rest in perfect peace,” he said. Mr. Buhari’s condolence message was contained in a statement by his campaign office, Thursday in Abuja.

Mr. Buhari also said an APC government will provide the necessary military equipment and personnel to prosecute the battle effectively and efficiently as soon as he is voted into power in the forthcoming elections.

“The APC, as a party, also recognizing the sufferings of the retirees whose pension arrears and gratuity have remained a serious problem. This will be corrected by the APC government,” he said.

Stay away from Politics Mr. Buhari also used the opportunity to call on members of the armed forces to stay away from partisan politics.

“I urge you all in the armed forces to remain apolitical and focus on the ethos of discipline which is the hallmark of your profession.

“I wish to assure you of my un-alloyed commitment to returning the Armed Forces to its place of pride among comity of nations.

“I am aware of the neglect on the military over the years and assure you that everything will be done within available resources to train and equip the military to the level comparable with other developed militaries of the world in the shortest possible time,” he said.

Mr. Buhari said the Nigerian Military had accomplished a lot of feats in building and ensuring global security and peace in conjunction with the armed forces of other great nations of the world as was experienced in the Congo, Sierra-Leone, Liberia, Lebanon and other areas.

“Therefore I call on all Nigerians to join us in the APC in our quest to making Nigeria a better place for all,” he said.

      Your grammar is awful, and reflects your understanding: a loser’s mindset. Go back to school.

    We have been looking forward to the day Jonathan would commiserate with and do something extra for the families of our gallant soldiers and other security units who died defending Nigeria against the murderers called boko haram, but l guess our expectation was misplace. Thank you, Gen. Buhari for taking time to console them. When you’re finally elected, please create special financial aid programs to help the spouses and children of these fallen heroes to move on in life. God bless Nigeria.
