Saraki: Let’s Use Democracy To Entrench Peace, Development by engreo(m): 6:48am On May 30, 2019
Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki has congratulated Nigerians on the nation’s attainment of 20 years of uninterrupted democracy.

He urged the people to use democracy to entrench peace and genuine development.

In a statement by his Special Adviser (SA) on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Senate President described the commemoration of 20 years of democracy as a thing of joy in view of the many positive developments the country has witnessed since May 29, 1999.

He advised Nigerians to fully take ownership of democracy and its institutions and use them to “entrench peace, welfare and improved standard of living for all our people.”



Saraki said democracy is about the people, and the people should use democracy to achieve social justice, equity, inclusiveness and economic self-reliance.

While urging the followers to hold their leaders accountable and ensure they always act in the best interest of the people and country, the Senate President also advised the people to be good followers and be law-abiding at all times.

“We should avoid conflicts and blood-letting as no country can develop in the midst of chaos. We should all steer clear of issues, comments and situations that emphasise our fault lines,” he said.

Saraki urged newly-elected leaders, who were sworn in yesterday, to work for the development of the country and the continuous preservation of the nation’s democracy.

The Senate President noted that the benefits of a constitutional democracy far outweigh the challenges that have confronted the country since the return of democracy.

He said: “It is a thing of absolute joy and national pride that we are today celebrating two decades of sustained democratic governance in the country.

As if that's not enough, u're dancing 'shaku shaku' to 'atikulate' music behind Atiku across Nigeria when u suppose to put ur house in order knowing fully that kwarans were not joking with their o'to ge movement until u allowed d o'to ge tsunami to consume u! I hope this would not be d beginning of ur political oblivion. It shall be well with u sir!

The worst part of Saraki is, he will not be relevant in scheme of things in PDP immediately Atiku losses his court case.

If you can imagine the devil wearing that Lords Chosen bulletproof vest, and coming to preach in your area, or imagine the devil doing baptism, that how I see saraki when ever he spits anything out, this man has lost the right to speak and sensible Nigerians will listen. So Mr Saraki STFU.

That's what patriotism involves, and not loyalty to one person.

Poor Saraki

Ipobs didn't leave him until they ruined him with their generational badluck.

Same thing they did to Atiku, Kwankwanso, Eleka, Agbaje, Fayose.

Once they support you, you're ruined.

That should be the mission.

Democracy should bring peace and unity in Nigeria not hatred and division.

Say no tribal and religious bigotry, we are all humans with blood in our veins first before our tribe or religion!
