The All Progressives Congress (APC) has joins all well-meaning Nigerians to celebrate the country’s new Democracy Day.
The party in a statement issued yesterday by the National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu said today’s celebration is not only significant in the annals of Nigerian political history, but also momentous in all ramifications.
“The President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC government has once again demonstrated its avowed commitment to correct past injustices and celebrate heroes and heroines that paid the supreme sacrifice for the democratic freedom that we all cherish and enjoy today.
“In correcting past injustices, the APC-led government is also committed to equitable administration of our commonwealth for the benefit of all Nigerians.
“The world over, democracy in its various forms and with its inevitable imperfections, remains the most representative system of government.
He said the Buhari’s government would continue to commit itself to the finest ideals of democratic values and ethos by its progressive actions and programmes for the people and the country.
“We hereby urge all Nigerians to continue to appreciate the importance and significance of today’s occasion by continuously guarding jealously this hard-earned democracy, over which so many of our compatriots paid the ultimate sacrifice.
