As Nigeria marks Democracy Day on June 12, 2021, the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Bola Tinubu, has urged Nigerians to stand for democracy.

Tinubu made the call in a congratulatory message to the nation on Friday, adding that democratic good governance offers solutions to national challenges.

He urged Nigerians to stand for democracy despite the challenges they were going through.

“Democratic good governance offers the only reasonable solution to the challenges confronting Nigeria.

“Thus, we must stand for democracy today. We must stand for it, even more, tomorrow,” he said.

The former governor of Lagos State also urged Nigerians to stand against whatever could hinder democracy.

He urged them to stand against those engaging in insurrection and violence as well as those trading in bigotry and hatred.

“We contend against those who would render the people ignorant and poor.

“We celebrate Democracy Day not only because we have come far but to help give us the social fuel and encouragement to continue onward because we have farther to go and even greater things to achieve as one nation and one people,” Tinubu said

The APC leader urged Nigerians to remember MKO Abiola whose victory on June 12, 1993, Presidential Election was ‘stolen’.

He urged Nigerians to also remember others who sacrificed so much to bring democracy to Nigeria.

“We best honour these people not by reciting their names but by injecting the spirit and hope of democracy into our words and deeds.

“In becoming better democrats, we also become better at being Nigerians.

“I wish all of you a meaningful and happy Democracy Day,” he said.
