- Uche Secondus declares says Nigeria can be great again with a flourishing democracy
- Secondus is not happy that a country as endowed as Nigeria is being termed the poverty headquarters
- He urges Nigerians to stand against any attempt to hinder them from picking their leaders
The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, says prospects of a better Nigeria are very bright, if democracy flourishes and people are allowed to exercise their franchise at will.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Secondus said this in a statement issued by his media aide, Ike Abonyi, on Monday, October 1, in Abuja, to mark Nigeria 58th Independence anniversary.
He said it was regrettable that a richly endowed nation like Nigeria was being declared the headquarters of the world poor due to leadership problem.
Secondus expressed concern about threat to the country’s democracy as Nigeria celebrated another anniversary.
According to him, this was witnessed at the last governorship election in Osun state, where he said that will of the people was truncated.
He said that the consolation was that democracy provided Nigerians the opportunity to change bad government and urged them to do so in 2019.
The PDP leader urged Nigerians to stand up against anything that would prevent them from freely determining who governs and how public funds were expended.
