The Governor praised the Nigerian Armed Forces for maintaining peace in various regions of the country, promising to keep up the custom of commemorating dead heroes and praying for those who are still alive.

Speaking at the Ministry of Home Affairs’ interdenominational service, “I will heal their country (2 Chronicles 7:14),” he said. Governor Sanwo-Olu stated that his administration will continue to ensure that the relationship between his administration, the inhabitants, and the Armed Forces grows, and he prayed that God would heal the land.

The Governor also urged civilians to show their support for the security personnel who work diligently to keep the country safe.

“As we continue the tradition of holding this service to honor our fallen heroes and heroines who have paid the ultimate price for this great nation, the government and people of Lagos State will uphold that tradition and ensure that the relationship between the political class, civilians, and the military grows on a daily basis.”

Today is a day to remember our fallen heroes, and on behalf of the people and government, I’d like to thank all of their families who are here, and assure them that the government will continue to do what is expected of us to remember them and to say that their sacrifices and commitments to the country were not in vain.

“We hope that our country will experience peace and glory. May the Lord’s peace, which surpasses all understanding, rest upon our country and state. Everything will be OK in Lagos State. Nigeria will be in good hands. Everything will work out for the best for each and every one of us. ” Governor Sanwo-Olu bowed his head and prayed.

The Venerable Victor Olusa, Executive Secretary of the Lagos Anglican Schools Management Board, said in his sermon that the service’s theme was very pertinent and fitting to Nigeria’s circumstances, and that people should strive to do the right thing rather than criticize their leaders.

He added that people need to refocus their values, since God is ready to heal Nigeria and Lagos State. He prayed that Nigeria would rise again if all citizens humbled themselves, sought God’s face, and turned away from their evil ways.

The cleric also advised the Armed Forces not to give up or become discouraged as they fight insurgency, banditry, and other forms of instability throughout the country.
