Lawan told reporters after the event;
This is a special prayer dedicated to the Armed Forces of our country.
You know the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and other security agencies of this country are working so hard to ensure that the country is secured and is safe and they do that with commitment, patriotism and a sense of responsibility and duty.
It is our duty as citizens to always pray for them and give them the kind of support they need and require. Even though resources may not be sufficient, we have to, at all times, prioritise funding and making provision of resources for the Armed Forces and other security agencies a top priority as a government and as a nation.
This, we will continue to do by the grace of God. For other citizens, we should continue to pray for our Armed Forces because they deserve every possible support. I make this statement with all sense of responsibility, that even though we have never provided enough for them, they have given us a top performance.
