June 12: Lagos SDP Chairman, Olaniyi Sends Message To Nigerians
This day is one of extreme significance in our history as a nation as it marks the return of power to the people.
Our uninterrupted democracy since 1999, is proof of its overwhelming popularity and acceptance, as it has allowed the active participation of everyone in the society in choosing their leader.
I call on the Lagos State Government to extend dividends of democracy to the greatest majority of our people.
I want to use this opportunity to again commend our President, Muhammadu Buhari for officially recognising June 12 as the nation’s Democracy Day in honour of the Late M.K.O. Abiola, who paid a steep price for this participatory government.
I call on all Lagos people, Nigerians and friends of our dear country to support our effort to deepen democratic values towards ensuring that our people are major stakeholders in the process of governance.
Hon. Femi Olaniyi (Ferrari)
Social Democratic Party (SDP), Chairman,
