A gathering, Intellectual Reformers Organization, has encouraged Nigerians to guzzle the soul of solidarity and agreement, saying these were the standards behind the Democracy Day festivity. The President of the gathering, Mr. David Opeyemi, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Ibadan on Wednesday that absence of solidarity and agreement was undermining the country’s majority rule government.
He said that while the gathering commended the decision of the new date for Democracy Day, there was more to be finished by both the administration and the natives to guarantee the advantages of the majority rules system. ” Government at all dimensions of intensity current administration, military, assembly, legal executive and official are to soak up the soul of June 12.
“Such soul incorporates solidarity, concordance, the course of direction, institutional quality, war on neediness and arrangement of individuals situated administration,” he said. Opeyemi reviewed that Nigerians the nation over were joined in choosing Chief M.K.O. Abiola as President on June 12, 1993, preceding the race was annulled.
“He was chosen, not as a result of his ethnic or religious inclining, but since the lion’s share of our comrades had confidence in his crusade guarantees which were depended on the war against neediness. “In any case, the triumph was revoked by the Babangida-drove military organization, and unfortunately, 26 years after, we are still in the battle to have the Nigeria of our fantasy,” he said.
As indicated by him, the Nigerian dream will develop just when government ascends to the test of giving commendable administration and natives become more patriotic. “For what it’s worth, our own is as yet a vote based system without profits; a skeleton without the substance of good administration, solid establishments, enthusiastic residents, caring pioneers and solidarity of direction and fate,” he said.
He advised Nigerians to consider their pioneers responsible and to approach social arrangements, activities, and deeds without the focal point of partisan governmental issues. “We as a whole should turn hard of hearing ears to the expressions of disunity and visually impaired our eyes to the individuals who might need to utilize us as pawns for parochial interests,” he said.
