We implore all lovers of democracy, political gladiators and stakeholders not to play politics with it as the step is long overdue.
“We wish that all Nigerians will see it as a right step in the right direction to strengthen our democracy. We equally want to use this medium to thank Mr President for his tireless effort in taking this country to a greater height and projecting the good image of our dear country globally.

This has greatly affected lives of many youths through the N-Power programme, school feeding programme for school children and conditional cash transfer to mention but few. It as also has gone a long way in saving lives, reduction of poverty and creation of job opportunity for the teaming populace”.
