From Tongnaan Bawa, Jos

Plateau State Governor, Caleb Mutfwang, has called on Nigerians to unite and work together to build a better Nigeria.

In his Democracy Day statement signed by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Gyang Bere, in Jos, emphasized the importance of fairness, equity, justice, and the rule of law in the electoral process.

“It was on that day in 1993 that Nigerians across ethnic, religious, and regional divides came together to vote, symbolizing a collective desire for democratic leadership.”

Governor Mutfwang also paid tribute to the nation’s patriots who fought for democratic rule, resulting in 25 years of uninterrupted leadership.

“As we commemorate this day, we should also acknowledge the strides we have made in establishing democracy as Nigeria’s governance model. In that regard, political stakeholders must uphold fairness, equity, justice, and the rule of law in our electoral process.”

June 12, the Governor said, also honours the memory of the 1993 Presidential elections which were regarded as the freest and fairest in the country’s history.

He said democracy remains the best form of governance where the people have the power to decide who governs them.

While acknowledging the security and economic hardships the citizens are going through, the Governor appealed for patience, pledging his administration’s commitment to transparent, accountable and inclusive governance.
