The Nigerian Air Force Officers Wives Association (NAFOWA) in conjunction with the Airmen Wives Association (AWA) 105 Air Force Composite Group has urged Nigerians to show love to soldiers wounded in the campaign against insurgency.

NAFOWA President, Arc Rukyat Abubakar represented by Borno State Coordinator, Mrs Esther Olayera, led a delegation of members of the association to visit wounded soldiers at 7 Division Nigeria Army Hospital in Maiduguri on Wednesday.

She stressed that the soldiers have been very great in fighting against all forms of criminality and sacrificed a lot to defend the sovereignty of Nigeria, saying they deserve more love from well-meaning and cooperative organizations.

“We are to see you and pray for you in the shortest time you would be on your feet and go back to your various units. We are showing solidarity with you, and we hope that our little features will bring happiness to you.

“We appreciate your sacrifice and we can’t thank you enough for your efforts to protect this state, regions and the nation at large.

“We need to show our soldiers love and you can see how happy they were when we introduce ourselves to them. This will surely hasten their healing process and help their psychology,” she said.

The delegation was received by Commander Medical Services 7 Division of NA, Lt Col. AA. Ogunsakin, who thanked the NAFOWA leadership for the gesture.

“It is a laudable gesture and it is a solid message to us that we are not left alone, and it shows that people think about the wounded soldiers and appreciate their sacrifices to the nation,” Ogunsakin said.
