Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has described military officers who died in active service as martyrs.

He, therefore, enjoined the people of the state not to wait until the next Armed Forces Remembrance Day to support the wives and families of the fallen soldiers.

Like the early Christians, who died in the defence of their faith, Abiodun said these “military martyrs paid the supreme sacrifice for Nigeria to remain one and for us to sleep with our two eyes closed.”

He urged fellow Nigerians to look around their neighbourhood and stretch out their hands of fellowship to them.

Abiodun said these at the special church service held to mark the 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day held at the Cathedral Church of St. Peters, Ake, Abeokuta.

The governor said that his administration would continue to support the Nigerian Legion and living heroes and also ensure that it improves the welfare of all retired service personnel.

He said: “I want to enjoin all of us that let us not wait until the Remembrance Day of 2021. Let us look around us; let’s find a widow; let’s find a widower; let’s find an orphan of a fallen soldier and let us reach out to them. May the labour of our heroes are not in vain.

“As an administration, we shall continue to support the Nigerian Legion. We shall continue to appreciate all our fallen heroes. We shall continue to support our living heroes with equipment. We will ensure they are better motivated and we will look after their welfare so that you and I can sleep better at night.
