In the new list, while retired Justice George Oguntade (Lagos) and Ahmed Ibeto (Niger) maintained their nomination, several new names have emerged on the list.

Alao the House of Representatives has joined the country to honour the gallantry of the armed forces in their fight against terrorism and the capturing of Sambisa Forest.

According to them, the armed forces remembrance day is a time for the nation to reflect on the sacrifices made by men  and women of the armed  forces for the unity of the nation.
