Senator representing Plateau North, Istifanus Gyang has appealed to the Federal Government to use the 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day to review the welfare of serving officers and men as well as retirees, “including dead benefits and wellbeing of surviving families”.

He also said as the Deputy Chairman Senate Committee on Defence, the Committee will initiate and engage necessary legislative interventions to further equip and empower the Armed Forces “to effectively undertake and deliver on their clearly defined constitutional responsibility”.

Gyang disclosed this through his Special Adviser Media and Protocol, Ibrahim Musa Ashoms, on the occasion of the 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day, commemorated across the country.

He said, “As the nation marks the 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day, I salute officers and men of the Armed Forces and veterans alike who placed their lives on the line to secure the lives of citizens and preserve the territorial integrity of the nation.
