Gov Obaseki Commends Nigerians’ Commitment to Democracy on Democracy Day

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has praised the resilience and bravery of Nigerians in upholding democratic principles over the past 25 years.

In his Democracy Day message, Governor Obaseki underscored the importance of being able to freely elect leaders and the significant progress made in Nigeria’s democratic journey.

He said, “As we mark this year’s Democracy Day, it is crucial to recognize the tenacity, resilience, and bravery of Nigerians in sustaining the core tenets of democracy over the past 25 years,” Governor Obaseki said. “It remains one of our greatest legacies as a country that we are able to freely choose those who preside over our affairs and decide whether to keep or change them every four years.”

Reflecting on the nation’s progress, he stated, “We have come a long way in this journey. Although we might not be where we wish to be today, we are better off for it as a nation. Democracy remains the most desirable form of government because of its core principles of freewill, free enterprise, civil liberties, fairness, and justice.”

Governor Obaseki credited the nation’s growth as a democratic state to the citizens who continue to uphold these principles and called for continued dedication to these democratic principles as the nation looks forward to further advancements and sustainable growth.

“All credit for the progress we have made goes to Nigerians who continue to respect the tenets of democracy as the best choice to attain sustainable development,” he said.
