The Labour Party has said that the commemoration of another June 12 occasion must come with a deep reflection of the progress recorded so far in the nation’s democratic experiment.
Nigeria has experienced 23 years of unfettered democracy since 1999.
The National Chairman of the party, Julius Abure said this while speaking at a programme in commemoration of the June 12 democracy day anniversary.
Mr Abure pointed out that collective efforts must be made to correct the imperfections yet to be addressed to make the system of government worthwhile.
He, therefore, called on Nigerians to re-enact the collective will and Unity witnessed during the 1993 election when the majority of Nigerians unanimously voted for MKO Abiola.
Abure also noted that the labour party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi remained the symbol of unity that will restore the hope of all Nigerians.
The Labour Party Chairman called on Nigerians to get their permanent voter cards – PVC’s and participate in the 2023 elections.
