Shortly before extending condolences to the families of those who have fallen in the line of duty, Governor Soludo prayed for God's strength for those putting their lives on the line of service to protect and defend their father land.

The Governor specifically addressed the services of security officials within Anambra State, highlighting their vital role in restoring peace and security to the State and region.

"In March 2022, when eight local government areas were under siege, it was the professionalism and commitment of the Armed Forces, alongside the Anambra Vigilante services and the support of our people, that ultimately led to the return of peace," Governor Soludo stated.

The Governor expressed his deep appreciation and gratitude for the sacrifices made by the Armed Forces, acknowledging their dedication to serving others.

"My prayers, and those of the good people of Anambra, are continuously with you," the Governor declared.

Earlier in a homily, the Chancellor of the Catholic Diocese of Awka, Rev. Fr. Charles Ndubisi, reiterated God's constant search for those who are truly pursuing their purpose on earth and urged service members to remain focused and avoid distractions.


The thanksgiving mass was attended by various dignitaries, including Anambra Deputy Governor, Dr. Onyekachukwu Ibezim, Speaker of the State House of Assembly Rt. Hon. Somtochukwu Udeze, Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Solo Chukwulobelu, Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr Ernest Ezeajughi, Head of Service, Barr.
