#ArmedForcesRemembranceDay: Nigerians pay homage to fallen heroes


Nigeria marks the 2021 Armed Forces Remembrance Day on Friday in honour of her fallen heroes (men and women of uniform who have lost their lives while serving the nation).

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and a host of other top government officials and members of the diplomatic corps paid respect to the heroes with the traditional laying of wreath event at the National Arcade, opposite Eagles Square, Three Arms Zone, in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The yearly event was also attended by the President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; and the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammadu, and the nation’s security chiefs.

While the physical event supposedly took place across the country many other Nigerians have taken to Twitter to ensure that the labour of our heroes past is not in vain.
