In his remarks, Oba Akanbi commended the Chief of Defense Staff, General Christopher Musa, for bringing sanity to the Nigerian Army through multifarious activities including honouring veterans, as well as wounded and injured soldiers, with Harry’s visit.

Oluwo equally expressed assurance that the visit will re-engineer Meghan’s ancestral connection with Nigeria, widening the chance of Nigeria to host Invictus Game in 2027 and enhance the proposal to site the game’s centre in Nigeria, in support of the soldiers.

He said, “I am elated to be part of this event. I am impressed with the current leadership of the Nigerian Army. They are improving the tempo of our security architecture and boosting the morale of veterans, wounded and injured soldiers.

“The visit of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, respectively, facilitated by the Defense Headquarters, is heroic. It will cement the security partnership and enhance Nigeria’s chance to host the 2027 Invictus game. I’m honouring Meghan with a Yoruba name ‘Adetokunbo’ meaning ‘Crown has come home from abroad’.

Meghan, in a 2022 interview, had revealed she was “43 per cent Nigerian” after doing a genealogy test.
