President Tinubu is in Guinea-Bissau to attend the 63rd Ordinary Session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), which opens on Sunday.
He further reminded the troops, led by their Commander, Brigadier-General Alhassan Grema, that Nigeria is a giant on the African continent, recalling the country’s contributions to sustenance of democratic culture anywhere in the world.
He expressed appreciation and gratitude to the soldiers and their Commander, Brigadier-General Grema, for their dedication and service to Nigeria and their host country, adding that Nigeria would continue to support democracy in West Africa and around the world.
“Nigeria is a giant that has made its mark in Sierra Leone and Liberia and other places. We count on your support for the defence of constitutional order. I heard your allowances have been paid up to date. Nothing else should make you angry. We will continue to build a virile force.
