The Lagos State Chairman of the Social Democratic Party, Hon. Femi Olaniyi (Ferrari) has congratulated Nigerians and the good people of Lagos State on the occasion of October 1, 2020 Independence Day.
In a statement signed by the Lagos State SDP Publicity Secretary, Obinna.O.Obichukwu said, this year’s occassion of INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION is very special to us as a people of Nigeria and as a party, because it will aid us in reviewing our various institutions of government, how they are funded and equipped to cater for the needs and yearning of the masses.
The statement reads:-
“Beloved fellow Compatriots, today is another in the season of time, events and history has offered us another opportunity to take stock of our journey so far as a democratic Nation, to evaluate and re-evaluate our individual and collective impacts in Nation Building, to re-access the political and developmental milestone in deepening democracy and dividends of democracy to the citizenry”.
“Similarly, this year’s occassion of INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION is very special to us as a people of Nigeria and as a party, because it will aid us in reviewing our various institutions of government, how they are funded and equipped to cater for the needs and yearning of the masses”.
“A closer look at what is happening in our political space of recent, one would be forced to ask “Is this the NIGERIA of our founding fathers fought for”, cos apparently every institutions of government is either weak or has collapsed and non functional where nepotism, bribery and corruption has been enthroned to the detriment of a just and corruption free system. Is regrettable that Nigeria of today is such that has been marred by political partisan in job acquisition, admission in schools of higher learning, recruitment into government force sector,para-military agencies and parastatals, where one has to lobby and the highest bidder gets the contracts, where importation of goods and materials is meant for the reach and exclusively for a particular ethnic group and tribal, where those entrusted with public funds are the ones siphoning them in their billions of Nairas and dollars, yet government will turn blind eyes on them, where lives of people does not matter any longer, where crime, social vices, kidnapping, armed robbery, killings, rustling and banditry, community clashes, where hunger and starvation and all manner of evils could be visibly seen on daily basis, yet we have that meant to protect her citizens and put to stop all this atrocities ravaging our lives and political system”.
“Nevertheless, we use this medium to thank the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for conducting one of the most free and fair elections in Edo in the recent time.
The All Progressive Alliance(APC) led Federal Government should as a matter of importance and necessities raise up to her responsibilities in protecting the lives and properties of her citizens, strengthening our political and government institutions to serve the basic purpose for which they were created and established”.
“Dear fellow believer and defender of our democracy, now is the time we need to raise up ,ask our leaders pertinent questions, hold them accountable at all times, we equally need to engage and participate actively in the politics, politicking, electioneering and election processes at all times, hence the Social Democratic Party of Nigeria is here to offer you a veritable platform to engage in building a stronger government institutions that will be free of shackles and chains of power that be, that will independent and of people oriented. We, equally employ us to desist from any acts that’s capable of undermining our democracy, shun any thing that could possibly degenerate to chaos in our polity”.
Social Democratic Party is wishing you a peaceful and lovely holiday.
