The National Arcade came alive with the green white green colours of Nigeria as the country marked this year’s Armed Forces and Remembrance Day.
The National and the services flags flying at full mast with full security cordoning the entire axis leading up to the venue of this year’s occasion as dignitaries continue to arrive while the special guest of honour the President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces is being awaited.
All government functionaries, Service Chiefs, members of the Diplomatic Corps, Widows of the fallen Heroes and members of the public are present at the venue.
The parade consists of all the armed forces: the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy, and the Air Forces all adorned in their ceremonial dresses looking colourful.
The clergy men that are to handle the prayer session are also on ground as other dignitaries are still being expected before the arrival of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
