Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on Nigerians to work collectively to improve democracy in the country.
This was contained in the party’s Democracy Day message which was a press statement signed by the APC National Publicity Secretary, Mr Bolaji Abdullahi.
While congratulating Nigerians on the occasion, the party said in-spite of its imperfections, democracy remains the best form of government that can best serve the interest of our people.
We should congratulate ourselves on the strides we have made in our political journey as a country since independence. For one, military rule is now distant memory in Nigeria.
The APC added that in spite of military rule, the nation has grown stronger democratically for the past 19 years.
We have conducted successive elections and have continually improved on the transparency and credibility of our electoral systems.
Remarkably, the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has continued in the country’s proud tradition of being a bastion of democracy in the sub-region and across the world, as seen in the current administration’s lead intervention in ensuring representative governance and peaceful transition of power in the Gambia.
As a Party in government, our commitment to address our current challenges, which find expression in the economy and security, remain unshaken. We urge all Nigerians to continue to pray and support the current administration’s effort to build a peaceful and greater nation.
