Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo Olu has reaffirmed the commitment of his administration to the welfare of the families of late officers of the armed forces.

He said the labours of the heroes past would not be in vain.

Sanwo-Olu spoke at the 2022 Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration and interdenominational divine service, at the Chapel of Christ the Light, Alausa, Ikeja.

The event with the theme: “I will heal their land”, was organised by the Ministry of Home Affairs.

It was attended by top government officials, including the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Lagos State chapter. Top officers of the armed forces and the police were also well represented.

Home Affairs Commissioner Prince Anofiu Elegushi said: “This gathering is to celebrate and remember our fallen heroes. Those that are no more and those that have any form of disability. Part of our celebrations is to give thanks to God for the nation, state and the armed forces. We are doing this to pray to God to heal our land and we believe He will do so.”

The Chairman, CAN, Lagos State branch, Rt. Rev. Steven Adegbite, thanked the governor for the hand of fellowship extended to the body of Christ, and prayed that God would uphold and uplift him.
