He recently revealed this while congratulating Nigerians on this year’s Democracy Day, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the fact that many people laid down their lives to ensure Nigerians enjoy democracy means that what they fought for deserve to be respected.
He added that he is pleased to see that Nigeria is still home to patriotic watchdogs holding leaders accountable and working assiduously to strengthen our democracy.
His words, “Our nation still boasts of patriotic watchdogs holding leaders accountable and working assiduously to strengthen our democracy.”
“We remember today, dogged and committed fighters for democracy, fundamental rights and freedoms like my mentor, late Chief Gani Fawehinmi, SAN, GCON, Chief MKO Abiola , GCFR, Dr Beko Ransome Kuti and Chima Ubani.”
“They fought relentlessly against military authoritarianism. They led civil society activists and other patriots to expand the democratic space and renew the hope of the citizenry in a progressive and peaceful Nigeria. They gave up their comfort and freedom so that we can be free. We owe them and other patriots a debt of gratitude.”
“Have we been meeting the expectations of our people? Are the challenges we are facing as a nation related to our inability to make democracy meaningful or beneficial to our people?”
“We must support our dear President so that he can steady the ship of state. We must prioritize the welfare of our youths. Their empowerment is critical to the sustenance of our democracy and the security of our country. If the youths are properly engaged and empowered, they will defend this country and its democracy against retrogressive elements.”
