By using the spectral Galerkin method, we prove a result on global existence in time of strong solutions for the motion of magneto-micropolar fluid without assuming that the external forces decay with time. We also derive uniform in time estimates of the solution that are useful for obtaining error bounds for the approximate solutions.
