Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has called on Nigerians to always pray for ex-servicemen  and serving military personnel for God’s protection  and blessing as they make sacrifices for the unity of the nation.
Speaking during the Inter-denominational service to  mark this year’s Armed Forces Remembrance Day at the St Peter’s Anglican Church, Rumuepirikom , Governor Wike said that ex-servicemen, serving  military personnel and the widows of ex-servicemen deserve better treatment  from the country.
He reiterated  his call for the Federal Government to set aside funds for the welfare of families  of deceased ex-servicemen.
The governor said: “They defend this country by stopping insurgents  from seizing  the country.
“They deserve the prayers of all Nigerians for the sacrifices  they make  for the unity  of the country . The N5million we give their families  at their death is not enough “.
He assured widows of deceased ex-servicemen of the support of the Rivers State Government to make life more meaningful for them.
In a sermon, the Rector of St Peter’s Anglican Church, Venerable Israel Omosioni called for the mobilization  of youths to contribute  their quota to the development of the country.
He said that youths should not be neglected in  the creeks, as their contributions will help fast track growth.
Prayers were said for the fallen heroes and their surviving families,  Rivers State, Nigeria, the Nigerian Legion and the Church.
