The PDP National Chairman said that the excitement that greeted the successful conduct of the governorship election in Edo state on September 19 shows clearly what and where the country can be when things are done correctly.
His words, “After Edo election, the nation was in elated mood, the Electoral Commission, the security agencies, the voters, the winners and the losers all went home fulfilled that there was no unjust act. No nation grows on injustice.
“That is what it should be in a country that allows the principles of democracy to prevail and allows the people’s mandate to prevail”, he said.
Prince Secondus congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and the country for the nation’s 60th independent anniversary but urged him to listen to the cry of the people.
He said, “The heavy burden on the daily lives of ordinary citizens is too much, there is the need to address hunger in the land as well as the insecurity.
“The multiple taxation policy in the country is killing business especially at this challenging times, government must address this burden”, he said.
Secondus prayed God to grant Nigeria and her citizens greater future where human sanctity will be respected.
