Senator Saliu Mustapha, representing Kwara Central in the National Assembly, who is also the Turaki of Ilorin, has admonished Nigerians to embrace patriotism and renew their commitment to democratic values, including equality, accountability, transparency and respect for human rights.

Senator Mustapha gave the admonition in a statement by his Media Assistant, Nasif Sholagberu, on Wednesday in Ilorin while felicitating with Nigerians on the occasion of this year’s Democracy Day.

The Senator, while reflecting on Nigeria’s journey towards freedom, justice, and democratic governance, noted that June 12 is more than just a date on the calendar; but symbolises the collective will of the Nigerian people and the enduring spirit of democracy.

He said: “Our democracy remains work in progress, and each citizen has a vital role to play in nurturing and sustaining it. By coming together and setting aside differences, we can build a stronger, and more inclusive Nigeria.”

While congratulating Nigerians on the journey thus far, Senator Mustapha urged them to remain steadfast in their commitment to democracy.
