Nigeria @60: We’re emerging a stable democracy – APC govs



As Nigeria marks 60 years of independence as a sovereign nation, governors under the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, have remarked that the nation is emerging as a stable democracy having been in the Fourth Republic for twenty years with six successful general elections.

The APC Governors in a statement signed Wednesday by the chairman of Progressive Governors Forum, PGF, and governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, commended Nigerians for their resilience and faith in a united democratic Nigeria, adding that as democrats, they have accepted their electoral victories and losses without much ado.

While acknowledging that sixty years of independence and nationhood were years with moments of rasping experiences, the governors noted that coming out of these years as a united country gives us all the reasons for celebration.

“As Governors elected on the platform of our party, APC, we reaffirm our commitment to the principles that democratic governance should lead to improved welfare for the mass of our citizens.

“This imposes a responsibility on all elected representatives to work for policies that promote the well being of citizens. Guided by the manifesto of our party, since 2015, our governments in all our states controlled by the APC and at the Federal level have remained focused, implementing pro-people initiatives across all sectors.

“Therefore, emerging as a stable democracy, we can say with confidence that the growing confidence of our people in our fledgling democratic system of governance is undisputable,” they said.

In the same vein, the national secretariat of the APC has reaffirmed its unwavering commitment to deepening Nigeria’s democracy.

The party made the commitments in a statement signed by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Yekini Nabena in commemoration of Nigeria’s 60th independence anniversary.

APC said, “As Nigerians and friends of Nigeria all over the world celebrate the 6th decade of her independence from the British colony, our party, the governing All Progressives Congress assures that the golden years of this great Nation will return under the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“There is no doubt that Nigeria has made great national history and nationalistic history makers from her economic and political evolution in the last 60 years.

“As a nation, we are better than where we were and with determination, faith, and commitment to our fatherland close to where we should be.

“In spite of our inherited and current challenges, President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has made commendable strides on so many fronts, most significantly the fight against graft, diversifying and revamping the economy, curbing insurgency and emerging crimes, promoting positive values in our national life, strengthening our democratic institutions and processes and achieving a respectable international standing.”
