Today (June 12 ) in history, remains the mark to the turning point of democracy in the chronicles of Nigeria as a nation. It is a day where Nigerians, irrespective of ethnic, religion, social status, and other prejudices, spoke in unity, love, and harmony. In this days several years ago, Nigeria in one mind, worked to elect their leaders in one of the freest and fairest elections ever.
The nation’s path was restructured in the direction of the best system of governance in this day. It was indeed a day that brought everyone on board for effective and inclusive participation.
The role played by the heroes and heroines against the military government to achieve the beginning of this turning point in the nation’s democracy is still fresh on our minds.
It has been twenty-one years of unbroken democracy in our country. Twenty-one years since the nation joined the league of democratic nations in the world.
I, sincerely commend the courage of the Digital Governor of cross River state, Senator Professor Ben. Ayade. I also appreciate the effort of the Nigerian Legislature and everyone who made today a reality and a day worthy of celebration.
As we celebrate the nation’s twenty -one years of unbroken democracy, this is a clarion call for retrospection on the past, consideration for the presence and a progressive thought for the future on how to make the system work better. This will make the vision and dreams of the martyr of our democracy to be maximized.
Democracy is a journey but not a destination and thus requires everyone to keep working till its best would be realized in the nation. This we can all do through effective participation, responsible and responsive manner.
At the grassroots level, my led administration would strive in ensuring that democratic ethos are well entrenched through good governance. This is the ultimate goal of democracy.
We are more committed to serving the people better with policies and programs already line up to be executed for more delivery of dividends of Democracy at grassroots. We are not relenting in matching our words with actions in converting our vision to reality through the impact my administration is set to make at grassroots.
I, implore all to keep increasing our patriotism and service to the nation. I am of the mind that with this, we shall collectively achieve a better nation.
Long live Federal Republic of Nigeria
