Only Democracy Can Solve Nigeria's Problems, Says Tambuwal
BEVERLY HILLS, CA, May 28, (THEWILL) â€' The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has said that despite various the challenges confronting the nation, democracy remains the only option available to Nigerians to weather the storm and build a prosperous country.
In a message to commemorate this year's Democracy Day issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal identified sincerity of purpose, peaceful co-existence and rapid socio-economic development of all sectors as critical elements in deepening democracy and rule of law.
He said democracy as a system of government does not thrive on an empty stomach; hence all leaders must collectively work hard to reduce poverty and promote the quality of life of all Nigerians.
According to him, Nigerians have shown great faith in democracy and its institutions; as such no challenge should be allowed to dampen their enthusiasm and desire for the progress of the people.
