Senate President Ahmad Lawan has urged Nigerians to use the democratic mechanisms to pursue the Nigeria of our dreams.
Lawan said this in a statement to felicitate with Nigerians on Democracy Day.
He said, “It is worrisome that we are celebrating Democracy Day this year amidst serious national challenges on the socio-political and economic fronts. This sad situation has given vent to violent verbal and physical expressions that constitute a serious threat not just to our democracy but to the unity of our nation.
“However, clouds always make way for a bright sky so we should not let the current situation to shake our faith in democracy and in our nation. No nation is free from challenges but great people use challenges to drive the wheel of national progress.
“As we match ahead on the journey; let us respect our diversity and use it to produce the harmony that makes democracy the best form of government yet invented by man.”
