Governor Kayode Fayemi has said Nigeria cannot afford another civil war, as he urged citizens to work towards sustaining the country’s peace.
The Ekiti State Governor warned against engaging in acts that could endanger the country’s fragile peace, insisting that “Nigeria cannot afford yet another war”.
The governor spoke yesterday at the official launch of the state emblem appeal fund for the 2019 Armed Forces Remembrance Day in Ado-Ekiti.
The governor, who was represented by his deputy, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, eulogised members of the Nigerian Legion and serving soldiers for their sacrifice to keep the country united.
“There is no price too high to pay for peace when compared to the cost of war. I, therefore, enjoin all engaged in acts that can endanger the fragile peace in our nation to desist from fanning the embers of war.
“This nation cannot afford another war and we must live in peace with one another. We must resolve that never again shall we allow our dear nation by our actions or inactions to experience another war.”
