As Nigerians celebrate the country’s 55th Independence Anniversary, the Democratic People’s Congress, DPC has expressed gratitude to God that despite all the socio-political as well as economic upheavals, Nigeria has been able to remain united.
The party said the country had continued to remain the great arsenal of democracy in Africa and a key player in world politics.
In a press statement, the National Chairman of DPC, Rev. Olusegun Peters, congratulated Nigerians on the country’s 55th independence anniversary, adding that it was a triumph of courage, patriotism and resilience of the citizenry to build a strong, virile, prosperous and just society.
Peters said the 2015 independence anniversary calls for sober reflection and prayers for divine intervention in piloting the affairs of the nation.
While urging President Muhammadu Buhari to be decisive, firm and courageous in charting the ship of the Nigeria state to the path of rectitude, development and advancement, he called on governments at all levels to implement policies and programmes that would enhance the well-being of the populace.
The DPC national chairman lamented that the long suffering masses deserve dividends of democracy and improved standards of living in line with Section 14 (2)b of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).
Peters reiterated that DPC would continue to support Federal Government’s fight against corruption, adding that the war against corruption should not be selective or used as an instrument to victimize perceived political enemies.
The DPC national chairman further called on public office holders to be patriotic in their service to the nation and make accountability and efficiency their watch words.
He charged INEC to provide a level playing field to all political parties contesting the Kogi and Bayelsa state governorship elections in November and December respectively and stressed that the need to conduct credible, peaceful and acceptable polls cannot be taken for granted.
