This Independence Day, we are celebrating those who are fighting for the sovereignty of Nigeria and the lives of Nigerians.
We asked that members of the Nigerian Armed Forces send their photos, rank, and division in the armed forces, together with a short message “This is why I serve…”
Well, our heroes have begun sending their stories in, sharing with us their selfless reasons for serving.
Rank and Name: Rear Admiral I.O Mohammed

This is why I serve – I believe our greatest strength as a country is our human capital and I serve to develop and protect it.

Message-This is why I serve (in the acknowledgement of the distinction of being the first trained Air Policeman) providing unblemished distinguished and meritorious service scrupulously and retiring honorably after service.
