This video showing Nigerian Army troops as they prepare to retake the last territories occupied by Boko Haram insurgents is inspiring. And for some reason, it brought tears to my eyes. I feel proud of our troops.
Those are young men – sons, brothers, fathers, and friends to many of us – out on the front lines fighting to keep all of us safe from evil men. Sometimes they fight despite inadequate ammunition and care. Thankfully, in recent times, the military has been better equipped. I can only wish them success. I pray that they succeed and return home to a heroes’ welcome.
I hope the video touches you as it has touched me.
This is a well done video. The Nigerian Army (and other arms of the military) should do more of this. Show us our boys. Show us what you do. Give us reasons to be proud of you. Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
