He explained that the campaign, which will be one of the biggest campaigns in the history of the Command, would be held in September with the theme: “The Five Million Salute”, aimed at raising support for the welfare of the men and women of the Nigerian legion, who are finding it difficult to grapple with the challenges of life in retirement, after their meritorious military service.
