Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has warned politicians against unguided statements capable of undermining the unity and integrity of the country. Governor Oshiomhole also commended officers and men of the Nigerian armed forces for fostering the bonds of unity, asserting that the Army remains the only institution that unites the nation.
The Edo State governor made the remarks during the launching of the emblem appeal fund to mark the 2013 Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration in Benin City. He said the men in uniform should be appreciated for their contribution to the indivisibility of the nation.
According to him, “The Armed Forces are doing their best to keep Nigeria one while politicians and even elders who should play up what unite us talk of things that could destroy the bridge of unity. But the men in uniform have continued to defend the indivisibility of Nigeria,” he noted.
He continues: “if Nigeria has remained one united country it is because men in uniform stood on the side of the Nigeria nation. We must continue to appreciate the Armed Forces in the effort to keep Nigeria one.”
