President Muhammadu Buhari got a surprise question at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, and he said he was proud to answer it.

A lady approached him to know the meaning of the emblem he had pinned to his chest during the event.

President Buhari said it was an unexpected opportunity to highlight the gallant sacrifices our troops are making on our behalf.

“The lady asked me about the Armed Forces Remembrance Emblem pinned to my chest. It was with great pride that I explained that it is a symbol to remember and Honour our Armed Forces veterans, and especially all who have paid the supreme sacrifice for peace and security in Nigeria,” the president said in a post by his media aide.

Buhari launched the emblem for the 2022 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration in Abuja a week ago.

He said at the launch the emblem is not only a sign of the sacrifices and blood of officers and men of the Armed Forces shed for peace and security in our country.

“It is also a sign of our resolve to remain united as a nation and confront any challenges we may face. It is a sign of our resolve to say no to divisions and embrace one another as a united indivisible country,” he said.
