Let's Show The World That Our Democracy Has Come Of Age, PDP National Chairman Tells Nigerians
BEVERLY HILLS, December 29, (THEWILL) – The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Adamu Mu'azu, Monday, asked Nigerians to show the world that the country's democracy has come of age.
Mu'azu made the call in a New Year message he sent to Nigerians through his Chief Press Secretary, Chief Tony Amadi.
The message read: “I wish to take the opportunity of this New Year message to urge all Nigerians to pray for peaceful polls in 2015, enhanced national security and the continued development of our dear country by the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.
“I also urge Nigerians to pray for the families of our missing school girls and the victims of the various bomb blasts in Nigeria, just as we thank God for the mercies granted us by freeing us from the scourges of Ebola and the positive transformation of our country in various fields.
“The steady progress Nigeria has made in recent years has been outstanding and we must thank God for making our country the biggest economy in Africa, not forgetting increased agricultural production and the investment opportunities our country continued to attract as well as the massive infrastructural development at the local, state and national levels.
“Nigerians must eschew violence as we approach the 2015 elections because we must show the world that our democracy has come of age over the last 15 years of democratic governance in the country. I wish all Nigerians a Happy and Prosperous New Year and my prayer is that God will grant us the wisdom to choose love instead of hatred, peace instead of war and progress instead of stagnation.”
