“We go through a lot of challenges and risks and it is our family, particularly our spouses, who face these challenges with us.
“They face more challenges than we the officers, especially, in keeping the home front peaceful when we are out on official assignments,” he said.
Owolabi urged the wives of military personnel to always support their husbands and not relent in prayers toward their husbands who are out there keeping the peace and unity of the country.
