Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has urged citizens to support the security forces as they work tirelessly to keep the nation safe.

Governor Sanwo-Olu made the call at the Year 2022 Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration’s inter-denominational divine service, which was held at the Chapel of Christ the Light, Alausa, Ikeja.

Sanwo-Olu assured that the State would continue to play its role and do what is expected in remembrance of the fallen heroes and heroines who paid the supreme price for Nigeria.

“As we keep the tradition of having this service to remember our fallen heroes and heroines that have paid the supreme price for this great nation, the government and people of Lagos State will continue that tradition and will continue to ensure that the relationship that exists between the political class, the civilians and the military, continue to grow on a daily basis,” he said.

He thanked families of fallen heroes; assuring them that the government would continue to remember them.

“We pray that our country will know peace; will know greatness.

“As we journey in 2022, the peace of the Lord which surpasses all understanding will rest with our country and our State.

“It will be well with Lagos State. It will be well with Nigeria. It will be well with each and every one of us,” Governor Sanwo-Olu prayed.

In his sermon, the Executive Secretary, Lagos Anglican Schools Management Board, Venerable Victor Olusa, said the theme of the service was very relevant to Nigeria’s situation, adding that people should endeavour to do the right thing and not to castigate their leaders.

He said people need a reorientation of values as God is ready to heal Nigeria and Lagos State, praying that Nigeria will rise again if all the citizens humble themselves, seek God’s face and turn from their evil ways.

The cleric urged the Armed Forces not to give up or be discouraged as they continue the war against insurgency, banditry and other forms of insecurity in different parts of the country.
