The leaders spoke separately against the back drop of incessant agitations by some sections of the country at the 50th anniversary of Nigerian Defence Academy ( NDA ) 3rd Regular Course of 1967.
General Abubakar, who was the special guest of honour at the golden jubilee dinner, told the Military officers that in or out of office, they must make the security, unity and peace of Nigeria the corner stone of all their endeavours.
He said Nigeria has made enough sacrifice in the past to keep the nation one, saying “whatever needs to be done to ensure peace, good neighborliness, unity, equity and justice to all must be done”.
On his part, Senator Mark recalled their conviction on entering into the foremost Nigeria military institution in September 1967 to include but not limited to patriotism to defend and protect the territorial integrity of Nigeria.
That conviction, Senator Mark stated, “still binds them even after their retirement,” insisting “we promised to be patriotic and continue to put the love of country above self at all times”.
Governor Tambuwal of Sokoto state expressed appreciation to members of the Armed forces for their tireless war against insurgents especially in the North East “where they are daily giving their lives to secure freedom for our people “.
He urged them to remain steadfast and a shinning example of patriotism and unity in diversity.
Chief of Defence Staff, General Olonisakin thanked the retired officers for making their professional experiences available to the younger generation in its noble task of safeguarding the territorial integrity of our country and in responding to contemporary threats to national security .
General Kazir maintained that leaders must be fair and firm to ensure that no group or individual would feel a sense of neglect in the scheme of things.
