The Olowu of Kuta, Oba Adekunle Oyelude Tegbosin II in Aiyedire local government area of Osun State has commended the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, and other leaders of the Nigerian Armed Forces for sustaining the culture of welfare for their serving and retired officers and men.

Oba Oyelude gave the commendation in his goodwill message to the Nigerian Armed Forces on this year’s Armed Forces and Remembrance Day celebrations.

In a release titled, ‘we are keeping your back’, the traditional ruler particularly commended the painstaking efforts of Mr Buratai for providing inspiring leadership to the rank and file and for identifying with the plights of families of soldiers who paid the supreme sacrifice of saving lives and properties of the citizens.

The traditional ruler lauded the immerse roles of the Armed Forces for securing the country from threats and ravages of Boko Haram insurgents, despite daunting challenges.

He added that the determination by authorities of the Nigerian Armed Forces will continue to safeguard the country from attacks within and outside her borders and provide the needed security for her citizens to live in peace amongst themselves.

The Olowu of Kuta, therefore, charged the rank and file of the Armed Forces to continue to key into the philosophy of a united, indivisible Nation as contained in the chief of Army staff address which harped on morale-boosting and keeping in touch with families and dependents of the fallen heroes.

The traditional ruler expressed his optimism that with the zeal of army personnel engaged in anti-terror wars in the Northern parts of the country, peace and security will be restored and Nigerians will again be free to pursue their legitimate businesses without let or hindrance.

The Olowu of Kuta called on well-meaning Nigerians to continue to contribute to the welfare of families left behind by soldiers who put their lives on the line to protect their country.
