1a

Lagos state Governor Akinwunmi Ambode spoke
at the Lagos House, Marina yesterday while
launching the 2016 Armed Forces Remembrance
Emblem Appeal about how we should recognize
the efforts of the Nihgerian armed forces.
He talked about the need for all citizens to
appreciate the fallen heroes through donations
for the welfare and upkeep of the families they
left behind, especially their widows and children.
The Governor said that the appreciation
was necessary especially at this period that the
nation is faced with the challenges of terrorism
and insurgency in certain parts of the country.
He said:
“As we speak, officers and men of the
Nigerian Armed Forces are on the
battlefield”.
“They have continued to demonstrate
bravery, courage and valour in order to
protect the sovereignty and territorial
integrity of our nation. They do this on our
behalf so that we may continue to live in
peace and security.”
“As we flag off this remembrance week
celebration with the emblem appeal launch, I
urge you all, especially our corporate
organizations to donate generously to this
noble cause in recognition of the sacrifices
of our fallen heroes,” Governor Ambode
said.
