Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has called on the Nigerian Armed Forces to rise to the challenges of insecurity in the country and rid the nation of criminals.

The governor commended the security operatives in the country for their selfless services in maintaining peaceful coexistence in the country, urging them to work hard and ensure a united and secured Nigeria.

Speaking on Saturday in Kano after laying the wreath at the Armed Forces Remembrance Day commemoration, Ganduje explained that with the regard given to the past heroes, the security operatives in Nigeria will take their responsibility diligently.

“There is no doubt this is a day we should be remembering every year. I congratulate the organisers for organising the event for the last seven days and everything is concluded today.

“The importance of this day is to remember those…who fought the Nigerian civil war so as to keep Nigeria one.

“There is no doubt we are benefitting from what they did in the past and therefore it is worthwhile to remember them.

“Also considering the security challenges we have in the country, this day is important so that our security operatives will take their responsibilities very diligently and very seriously so that we can continue to exist as one nation ridding ourselves of criminals among us,” Ganduje stated.

Others in attendance while commemorating the day are the emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, top officers of the Army, Airforce, Navy, NSCDC, and the Commissioner of Police.

Others are the wives of soldiers, associations of retired military personnel and their families.
