Nigerians have been urged to remember the Armed Forces and other security agencies in prayers at this festive period.

Ambassador Fatile, who spoke at a press conference in the Ikeja area of Lagos, noted that "com rain, come shine, these people are there. As I speak, these military personnel are in the bushes, jungles and creeks protecting us and the nation's assets. Some of them have not gone home for years, let alone seeing their loved ones".
The Converner therefore, appealed to Nigerians to always show love rather than castigating and critizing them.
"It will be nice to also extend the love to the personnel's extended family.
"In the United States of America, security agents are celebrated and honoured", Fatile stated.
She expressed condolence to traditional rulers and people of Tudun Boris community in Igabi Local Government area of Kaduna State, that lost their loved ones.
In an emotional laden tone Fatile, said,the Lord Almighty will comfort them and heal the wounded ones. "Affliction of such will never arise again".
Ambassador Fatile, appreciated the Chief of Defence Staff, CDS, General Christopher Musa and the Service Chiefs for their good work in the onslaught against insurgency since they assumed office, expressing optimism that with the efforts put in place, insecurity would be addressed.
