Buhari regime orders closure of Abuja roads



President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime has ordered the closure of roads accessing Arcade, Phase I, II and III of the Federal Secretariat complexes and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Abuja.

Folasade Yemi-Esan, the head of the Civil Service of the Federation, gave the directive in a statement issued on Friday by AbudulGaniyu Aminu, a director of communications at the HOCSF.

The closure, Ms Yemi-Esan said, was because of the upcoming activities marking the 2022 Armed Forces Remembrance Day to honour the nation’s soldiers in the military.

“The Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, is pleased to inform ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) and indeed the general public of the closure of access roads to the Arcade, Federal Secretariat Complex and environs on Friday by 2:00 p.m prompt,” said the statement.

It added, “This is in view of the upcoming activities marking the 2022 celebration of the Armed Forces Remembrance Day set aside to honour our fallen heroes.”

The event will feature the wreath-laying ceremony by Mr Buhari, top government officials, and members of the diplomatic corps, which will hold on Saturday.

The AFRD is observed every January 15 to honour fallen heroes of the nation’s armed forces in various wars and national assignments.
