The Governor-elect of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello, has called on Nigerians to always reflect on the sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces in keeping our nation together.
The governor-elect, who made the appeal in a message to the people of Kogi State through his media office on the 2016 Armed Forces Remembrance Day, said: “our nation owes her unity to the sacrifices of these fallen heroes”, adding that “we must therefore keep their dreams of a united and indivisible Nigeria”.
Mr. Bello noted that the choice of a special day as Armed Forces Remembrance Day is to underscore the need for all of us to rededicate ourselves to support our men and women who have been put in harm’s way for us to live in peace.
Asserting that security and liberty are basic ingredients that guarantees the progress of any nation, the governor-elect urged Nigerians to continue to support the members of the armed forces for their huge sacrifices.
“We must continue to rise in support of our armed forces in all ways we can and at all times. That is the honour they deserve for their sacrifices. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria”, he said.
