Governor Eno presents 845 billion Norwegian budget to Akwa Ibom parliament

'They are risking their lives for us' – Governor Eno praises fallen military heroes

Governor Umo Eno of Akwa Ibom on Friday commended all the fallen heroes of the Nigerian Army for the great sacrifices they made for the country.

Eno said this at the launch of the emblem to commemorate Armed Forces Day 2024, organized by the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Welfare in the state capital, Uyo.

The governor, who was represented by his acting representative, Senator Akon Eyakeni, said: “It is imperative that we commemorate our fallen heroes today as many people risked their lives and went through excruciating ordeals for the security of the nation. “

“In recent times, we have relied on the military to quell insurgency, terrorism and banditry within the country. In other words, we remain a united and indivisible nation today, but only because of the sacrifices made by the military. Thank you. For me, this is the least we can do to appreciate all the sacrifices they have made for the collective good of Nigerians.”
