As Nigeria celebrates the 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day accross the 36 states, Dapo Abiodun have taken turn to pledges more support for Nigerian Legion and living heroes.
The Governor of Ogun State, while attending the 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day, celebrated at the Cathedral Church of St. Peters, Ake, Abeokuta, along side his wife, said that military martyrs are like the early Christians who died in the defence of their faith.
The Special Church Service had high ranking officers from all angles of defence and service present.
Dapo Abiodun’s words in part,
I hold a strong belief that officers who died in active service should be regarded as martyrs. As a people, we should not wait until the next Remembrance Day to support the wives and families of our fallen soldiers.
Just like the early Christians who died in the defence of their faith, these military martyrs paid the supreme sacrifice for Nigeria to remain one and for us to sleep with our two eyes closed.
My administration would continue to support the Nigerian Legion and living heroes whilst also ensuring that the welfare of all retired service personnel is well taken care of. #BuildingOurFutureTogether.
Governor Abiodun therefore asked “Nigerians to look around their neighbourhoods and stretch out their hands of fellowship to these great men and women of honour.”
