As this year’s Democracy Day was not marked yesterday, Chairman of Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) and Governor Plateau State, Governor Jonah Jang has urged Nigerians to be patient with one another “in our democratic journey”, describing the country’s return to democratic rule as “the best thing that has happened to us.”
This was contained in his Democracy Day message signed by his Director of Press, Mr. James Mannok. He also urged Nigerians to appreciate the nation’s path to greatness as evidenced by the developmental strides in terms of infrastructural provision and wealth creation witnessed across the country.
While congratulating the nation’s leadership for steering the ship to safer zones, he, however, advised that “we must all work for the success of democracy.”
The Governor, while also calling for unity amongst the citizenry and advising Nigerians to promote peaceful co-existence in order for the ideals of its founding fathers to be achieved, stressed that all Nigerians have a responsibility of ensuring that peace and unity is sustained as well as cooperate with its leaders at all levels. He also called for prayers for Mr. President and all those in leadership positions for God to increase their wisdom and grace to pilot the affairs of the country.
Jang further reiterated the determination of the Plateau State Government to provide transformational projects anchored on its 3-Pillar Policy and sued for the cooperation from all and sundry.
