Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the House of Representatives, has congratulated Nigerians for their unwavering support for the nation’s democracy as they mark this year’s Democracy Day. He expressed his appreciation to Nigerians as they continue to support the country’s return to democracy by building its processes without faltering since 1999.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Lanre Lasisi, He said “this year’s Democracy Day is worth celebrating because it is a unique milestone in the nation’s democratic journey with the election of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a thoroughbred democrat, who is noted for his tenacious defence of democracy.”
Femi said that “his joy stems from the fact that Nigerians are set to appreciate the true meaning of democracy because the man in the saddle today is a product of democracy and someone who understands and appreciates the tenets of democracy and the value it brings to the table of the populace.”
He also said that as a true democrat who was involved in the struggle for the return of democracy, “Tinubu will not shy away from bringing to bear the dividends of democracy Nigerians have been yearning for.”
