Reciprocate fallen heroes’ patriotism, Nigerians advised
By Fisayo Akinduro, Osogbo
Nigerians have been charged to reciprocate patriotism of fallen heroes by continuing to live in love and unity.
Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola gave the charge during the 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Thanksgiving Service in Osogbo.
Oyetola said the sacrifice of the fallen heroes is devoid of ethnic colouration, religious intolerance, racism, language, boundaries and selfish interest and is worthy of emulation by all and sundry.
The Governor who spoke through his Deputy, Mr Benedict Alabi lauded the fallen heroes, veterans, the Nigeria army and other security agents for their efforts in keeping the nation together despite all odds.
He emphasized on the need for Nigerians to continuously celebrate and care for the disabled ex-service men, their widows, the children, families and their dependants as a way to appreciate their efforts for fighting to keep the nation intact.
“The greatest gratitude we can pay to their memories and sacrifice is to continue to keep the peace they fought for and to stand against all forms and resemblances of terrorism and insurgency.
” We all have responsibilities as leaders and Nigerians to curtail the raging insurgencies and prevent the outbreak of new ones.”
He stressed that their sacrifice and unquantifiable patriotism should make us to be proud as Nigerians and propel us to make the Nigeria project work sustainably.
