President Bola Tinubu has unveiled a significant commitment during the Armed Forces Emblem Launch on Wednesday, vowing to allocate a minimum of N18bn to provide Group Life Assurance benefits for the courageous soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.
This pledge, he noted, is a humble yet profound gesture of gratitude towards both the veterans and the bereaved families of their fallen comrades.
The President expressed that the allocated fund would not only cover Group Life Assurance benefits but also extend to encompass other crucial expenses and entitlements for the families of the fallen heroes of the Nigerian Armed Forces.
President Tinubu underscored his unwavering dedication to prioritize top-tier healthcare services for veterans and the entire citizenry. He assured the nation’s Armed Forces of his administration’s unwavering commitment to their well-being and security.
In a unifying call, the President urged all residents of Nigeria, regardless of their political affiliations or religious beliefs, to proudly wear the emblem and stand in solidarity with those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the peace and security of the nation. The emblem, a symbol of remembrance, signifies the debt of gratitude owed to the brave men and women who laid down their lives for the sake of the nation’s prosperity.
