Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Wednesday called for better care and attention to the welfare of families left behind by fallen heroes, saying that is the way to show gratitude for their selfless service to the country.
“For the living and families of the fallen heroes, we have to continue to pray for them, support them, engage them and thank them for their service to Nigeria,” he told reporters shortly after laying the wreath and performing other ceremonies at the 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day in Ilorin, the state capital.
AbdulRazaq commended the departed heroes for their selfless service in protecting the territorial integrity of the country and strengthening the unity, peace and security of the nation.
He also pledged more support to the security agencies to strengthen safety of lives and properties in the state.
“Our security agencies are doing exceedingly well in performing their mandate and we have to support them to perform their mandate of ensuring security in the state and Nigeria at large,” AbdulRazaq added.
AbdulRazaq also promised more support for the Nigeria Legion’s outreaches and other programmes in the state.
