Democracy is the best system of government – Bauchi governor

Democracy is the best system of government, Gov. Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State, declared in Bauchi on Sunday.

He stated this in his goodwill message to mark the 2022 Democracy Day.

He said democracy gives the people the right to choose who to govern them and how they want to be governed.

He added that it is this democratic right of choice that makes governments accountable to the people and make them liable to be voted out for incompetence.

“It is my pleasure to address you today on the occasion of the 2022 Democracy Day to mark the 23rd anniversary of the return of our great country, Nigeria to democratic rule.

“As you all know, Democracy Day used to be observed annually on May 29. The Federal Government changed the date to June 12 in 2018, however, in honour of late Chief MKO Abiola.

“Abiola was the acclaimed winner of the presidential election of June 12, 1993, an election annulled by the then military government.

“That we are today celebrating the 23rd Democracy Day is a testimony to the fact that democratic governance has not only been firmly rooted but has also come to stay in Nigeria,’’ he said.

Gov. Mohammed, who highlighted some of the achievements of his administration since inception, reiterated its commitment to the provision of more dividends of democracy for people of the state.

He called on the people of Bauchi State to continue to support and cooperate with his government to enable it to deliver more dividends of democracy.
