Nigerians On Twitter Show Appreciation To The Nigerian Troops With #ThankASoldier Campaign


December 7, 2015
Uniformed men and women have abandoned the comfort of their homes and families to stand at the war front against terrorism. They sacrificed blood, sweat and also put their lives on the line for so many people they have never met.

As a show of gratitude for selfless service, the Anakle team initiated a Military appreciation campaign from the 4th to 10th of December, both on and off social media.

They launched the Thank A Soldier hashtag on Twitter and are topping that with an end-of-the-year party at Bonny camp.

Nigerians on Twitter responded to the hashtag and tweeted their thanks. Here are some of them:
