The Nigerian Armed Forces Remembrance Day is a day set aside for sober reflections on the significance of the armed forces to the country.

Globally, the Armed Forces Remembrance Day is celebrated on November 11 every year and it is known as the armistice day, commemorating the end of the first World War. But, with the formal end of the Nigerian Civil War following the surrender of the Biafran secessionists on January 15 1970, the date was changed to mark the restoration of Nigeria’s unity.
