He recently revealed this via a statement, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the fact that people died for us to be united in the country is enough reason to not take it for granted.
Obaseki added that we are here today because people gave up their lives, and citizens shouldn’t forget that.
His words, “The unity of this country has been achieved on the blood of our fallen heroes; it is not something we should take for granted or joke with.”
“People are still sacrificing in the various arenas and battles in the country today, we shouldn’t take it lightly.”
“We are here today to remember gallant Nigerian soldiers and members of the armed forces who lost their lives in the course of defending our country.”
“We are here today because people gave up their lives.”
