Democracy Day: Gov. Mutfwang Congratulates Nigerians, Calls for Fairness, Justice in Electoral Process

Plateau State Governor, Barr. Caleb Manasseh Mutfwang, has extended his heartfelt congratulations to Nigerians for accepting democracy as the best model of governance in the nation and called for its sustainability for the development and progress of the country.

Governor Mutfwang, in a statement in Jos to mark Democracy Day, described it as a landmark moment for Nigeria: “It was on that day in 1993 that Nigerians across ethnic, religious, and regional divides came together to vote, symbolizing a collective desire for democratic leadership.”

June 12, the Governor said, also honours the memory of the 1993 Presidential elections which were regarded as the freest and fairest in the country’s history.

He said democracy remains the best form of governance where the people have the power to decide who governs them.

“As we commemorate this day, we should also acknowledge the strides we have made in establishing democracy as Nigeria’s governance model. In that regard, political stakeholders must uphold fairness, equity, justice, and the rule of law in our electoral process.”

He paid glowing tributes to the nation’s patriots who struggled, and even made the supreme sacrifice, for Nigeria to return to democratic rule, pointing out that through their relentless efforts, Nigeria has experienced 25 years of uninterrupted transformative leadership since the inception of the current democratic dispensation.

Governor Mutwang called on political leaders to prioritize the welfare and security of the people as well as work towards safeguarding the country’s unity.

Acknowledging the security and economic hardships the citizens are going through, the Governor appealed for patience, pledging his administration’s commitment to transparent, accountable and inclusive governance.
