DEMOCRACY DAY CELEBRATIONS…
IKPEAZU SALUTES NIGERIANS FOR THEIR RESILIENCE AND FAITH IN OUR NATION
The Governor of Abia State, Okezie Victor Ikpeazu, PhD has sent a message of congratulations to Nigerians on the occasion of this year’s Democracy Day Celebrations, in line with the new Act signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to the Governor, “this year’s celebration is special, being the first to be held on the 12th of June in commemoration of the day Nigerians trooped out in their millions and expressed their democratic choice devoid of tribal and ethno – religious sentiments in 1993. That election and the subsequent chain of events that followed it set the tone for the birth of the current democracy we have enjoyed uninterruptedly as a nation since 1999.
Governor Ikpeazu salutes the President, Commander in Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo, GCON, SAN, President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila and indeed all Nigerians on this auspicious occasion coming soon after the commencement of this current democratic dispensation.
