Rivers wants military veterans' welfare prioritised

11 January 2016, 10:07Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has appealed to authorities to ensure the welfare of families of slain military personnel and surviving retired staff received top priority.

The governor stated this during an inter-denominational Church Service at Saint Thomas Anglican Church to mark this year's Armed Forces Remembrance Day.

The event has concluded in Port Harcourt.

Wike said the nation needed to cater for all serving and retired military personnel who have sacrificed to protect others in the country.

He noted that it was important to always celebrate the soldiers who lost their lives defending the nation while others were pursuing their personal endeavours.

The governor said that he is aware that the Federal Government was working hard to ensure military pensioners were paid their entitlements.

Wike said the state government had made the payment of pensioners and civil servants a top priority.

He said that his administration would never relegate the payment of salaries and pensions to the background because workers and pensioners require their entitlements to maintain their families.

At the same event, Archbishop Ignatius Kattey of the Anglican Niger Delta Province, urged the Federal Government to always take measures to improve on the welfare of military personnel and pensioners.
