Secretary-General's remarks at Wreath-Laying Ceremony at UN House in Abuja, Nigeria

Dear Colleagues, Ladies and Gentlemen, honoured guests and family members.
August 26, 2011 is a date that is burned into the collective memory of our UN family.
On that tragic day, an appalling terrorist attack on UN House left 23 UN employees and civilians dead, and more than 60 injured.
Those staff members who lost their lives were unsung heroes who proudly served Nigerians through our organization’s work.
Clerks, receptionists and drivers.
A national professional officer and an associate expert.
A monitoring and evaluation specialist.
