Welcome To The Official Blog Of Adamawa Ministry Of Information

FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello has pledged the 
continuous support of the FCT Administration to the Nigerian Legion.
The Minister made this pledge when members of the Legion paid 
a courtesy visit to the FCTA and also to decorate him and other 
principal officers of the Administration with the year 2020 Armed
 Forces Remembrance Day emblem.

 Malam Bello also commended members of the Nigerian military 
for their contribution towards nation building including the creation 
of the FCT whose founding fathers he said were made up mostly of 
members of the Armed Forces.

He promised to work with members of the Nigerian Legion to support
 the families of members of the military who had paid the supreme price
 in the line of duty.

He especially had kind words for members of the Legion posted to the
 FCTA who he said were very hard working and often went beyond the
 call of duty in the discharge of their assignments.

He assured members of the Legion that FCTA’s donation for the Armed 
Forces Remembrance Day will be paid promptly while all staff will be 
encouraged to wear the emblem at all times as a mark of respect for 
the nation’s fallen heroes.

Speaking earlier, the leader of the delegation and National Chairman of
 the Nigerian Legion, Brig. Gen. Jones Akpa (Rtd) said that the Legion
 was empowered by law to oversee the management of all welfare
 issues of veterans who have disengaged honourably from the Nigerian
 Armed Forces.

He commended President Muhammadu Buhari for ensuring a 
predictable 30-day cycle of payment of pension to veterans thereby
 removing a major impediment to their welfare.

He also expressed the Legion’s appreciation to the FCTA for all the
 support rendered to it over the years.

The FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, Minister of State 
Dr Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu, Permanent Secretary, Sir Chinyeaka Ohaa 
and other principal officers were decorated with the emblem.
