Continue to do your best for Nigeria’s peace, Makinde charges Armed Forces
Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, on Wednesday, praised the nation’s armed forces for their efforts in the battling insurgency, urging them to continue to do their best to ensure peace reigns in the country.
Contained in his brief remarks on the occasion of the grand finale/laying of wreaths for the 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration, Makinde assured that he will continue to support dependants of fallen heroes.
“We want to appreciate the Nigerian Armed Forces for what they have been doing for our country, what they have done to keep peace within our continent and within the world. For their fallen colleagues, we give them the assurance that they will never die in vain.
“We don’t have any other country apart from this. They should do their best and they are appreciated. We know they are trying their best and they are highly encouraged,” Makinde said.
Chairman, Nigerian Legion, Oyo state command, Michael Fajimi tasked the federal government to prioritize the welfare of dependants of the fallen heroes by giving them subsidies.
“FG should emulate the idea of foreigners where they have accurate welfare for the aged ones, ex-service ones, they get some subsidies, free things,” Fajimi said.
Makinde led other top government officials and top officials of the Armed Forces to lay wreaths in honour of the nation’s fallen heroes.
