Legion Pleads for Accommodation on 2024 Remembrance Day


As Yobe state joins other states in commemorating this year’s armed forces remembrance day, the legion of veteran soldiers has called for assistance especially in the area of accomodations for its members.

Chairman of the legion in the state, Captain Ibrahim Ladi, retired made the call today while speaking with journalists during the occasion which took place in the government house, Damaturu, the state capital.

“Our members are facing a lot of challenges, one of which is the essential for life is shelter and we have many of our members still living in rented houses’

Sometimes we discover that during the rainy seasons, the rain will come and demolish the small houses they are occupying,” Captain Ladi laments.

He pointed out that with the escalation of the prices of things, their take home pensions is almost nothing to run the family affairs in training and taking care of their families.

He therefore called on the government to assist their members by providing them with accomodations noting that many of them are already in their eighties and cannot help themselves in that respect.

Speaking also to journalists shortly after laying the wreath, Yobe state governor, Mai Mala Buni expresses condolence to the families of the fallen heroes, to all Nigerians and people of the state.

“First and foremost, our heartfelt condolence is to the families of the fallen heroes and to all Nigerians and particularly, those of us in Yobe state,

“This signifies how peaceful Yobe is today that we are able to celebrate and commemorate the fallen heroes,” he said.
