Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has pledged to lend support, kindness and welfare for families of fallen heroes.
Sanwo-Olu made the promise while speaking at 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Thanksgiving Service held at Chapel of Christ The Light at Alausa, Ikeja.
Represented by his Chief of Staff, Tayo Ayinde, the governor called on all to come together to salvage the country through patriotism and mutual respect, saying that “Nigerians must play their parts individually for a greater nation, as the sacrifices made by our fallen heroes paved way for the peace, tranquillity and democratic bliss being enjoyed across the country”.
Quoting from the Book of Psalms Chapter 85 Verse 8, he said that God already had a pact of peace with Nigeria as evident in the peaceful nature of the country in spite of several threats to its security and oneness.
He, however, warned against nepotism, hatred and intolerance, adding that such cannot guarantee a peaceful co-existence.
