Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke has reiterated his administration’s commitment to expanding the state’s current level of partnership with the military.
Adeleke stated this on Thursday at the unveiling of the 2023 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Emblem in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State.
The governor, who said his administration, has a security sector reform that places the welfare of service personnel at the center stage, said military officers and their families will continue to receive the state government’s support in recognition of their service to the state and country at large.
He, however, launched the appeal fund for the 2023 Emblem for the Armed Forces Remembrance Day with N5 million.
Governor Adeleke said: The stability of the nation rests on the gallantry, patriotism, and sacrifice of the security and military services. Service personnel of the armed forces in particular in many volatile sectors of society confront and curtail open and subtle threats to the territorial integrity of the country. That we must live, many offered their precious lives. We must therefore continue to acknowledge the contributions of the armed forces to the survival of the nation.
“As we gathered here today, I reassure the military service of the commitment of our government to expand the present level of partnership. Our administration has a security sector reform that places the welfare of service personnel at the center stage.
“Today, I recommit to the well-being of our service personnel. Our veterans and their families will continue to receive our support in recognition of their service to the fatherland.
“It is on this note that I launch the appeal fund for the 2023 Emblem for the Armed Forces Remembrance Day with a sum of N5 million.”
