Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has commended Nigerians for upholding the core tenets of democracy for 25 years, noting that efforts at democratic consolidation would engender sustainable development in the country.

In a statement, the governor also charged voters in the state to come out en masse to participate in the September 21 governorship election, and to vote wisely so as to sustain the state’s developmental trajectory.

According to him, “As we mark this year’s democracy day, it is pertinent to applaud the tenacity, resilience, and bravery of Nigerians in sustaining the core tenets of democracy over the past 25 years. It has remained one of our greatest legacies as a country that we are able to freely choose those who preside over our affairs and decide to either keep or change them every four years.

“We have come a long way in this journey. Though we might not be where we wish to be as of today, we are better off for it as a nation. Democracy remains the most desirable form of government because of its core principles of freewill, free enterprise, civil liberties, fairness, and justice.
