Value, protect democracy, Tinubu urges Nigerians

President Bola Tinubu on Monday urged Nigerians to value and protect democracy as the country’s most viable form of government. ⁣

“The point is that we must never take this democracy for granted. We must forever jealously guard and protect it like a precious jewel,” Tinubu said in his maiden Democracy Day address to Nigerians as President, aired on the Nigerian Television Authority at 7:00 am Monday. ⁣

The President urged Nigerians not to take the liberty they now enjoy for granted as it was obtained through great sacrifice.⁣

“A people can never truly appreciate the freedoms and rights democracy guarantees them until they lose it,” he said.⁣

He pledged his administration’s commitment to diligently fulfil every component of its electoral pact with the people – the ‘Renewed Hope’ agenda.⁣

“We shall be faithful to the truth. Faithful to equity. And faithful to justice.⁣

“We shall exercise our authority and mandate to govern with fairness, respect for the rule of law, and commitment to always uphold the dignity of all our people,” the President said.⁣
