The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday, inaugurated the emblem and appeal fund ahead of the January 15, 2022, commemoration of the Armed Forces Remembrance Day.

The Lagos State Governor also donated N50 million to the state chapter of the Nigerian Legion during the appeal fund at the Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile.

He said, “Every year, we set out to remember our fallen heroes, men and women that served the country, especially on the war front. Those that paid the supreme price while serving the nation and it is customary that on January 15, we remember them.

“But before then, we usually have an emblem launch which we use to remind ourselves that we are together with them in fellowship and we are together throughout this period to offer prayers, wish them the very best and offer some succour, especially to the families of the fallen heroes; the widows and the widowers.

“On behalf of the government and people of Lagos State, we would donate the sum of N50 million for the emblem. So you can see that we have done 10 fold of what we did the other time. That itself is a big lift for us. We will continue to support in other areas.”

The Commandant of the Lagos State chapter of the Nigerian Legion, Col Fola Akande (rtd.), commended Sanwo-Olu for the welfare and concern for retired officers.
