A non-governmental organisation (NGO), the National Democracy Stakeholders Group (NDSG), has said that Nigeria witnessing 19 years of unbroken democratic governance is a big milestone that is worth celebrating.
The Chief Executive and Convener of the group democracy walk, Mr Kleisaint Akor, stated this in Abuja.
Akor explained that for the country to witness 19 years of uninterrupted democratic rule was an indication that Nigerians have realised that there is no better alternative to true democracy.
He said that it was only through this process that people could choose and elect their leaders through free, fair and credible elections.
The convener lauded all stakeholders in Nigeria, who had played one role or the other in achieving this unbroken democratic governance.
Akor urged Nigerians to shun violence and to continue to support the government towards moving the nation forward.
He said that his group had led thousands of Nigerians for a solidarity walk to create awareness on free, fair and credible 2019 general election.
NDSG is a pro-democracy group that advocates public participation in politics and promotes democratic institutional capacities.(NAN)
