June 12: Kwara First Lady Greets Kwarans, Hail Gov. Abdulrazaq For Bringing Dividends Of Democracy To The People

In commemoration of the 2020 Democracy Day,the first lady of kwara State and Founder Ajike People’s Support Center, Her Excellency Dr Mrs Olufolake Abdulrazaq has called for a more United front at sustaining the development and growth of democracy in the country.

Dr Abdulrazaq said' our uninterrupted democracy in the last 21 years is proof of its overwhelming popularity and acceptance, as it has allowed the active participation of everyone in the society in choosing their leaders.

The First Lady commends the Governor for his people oriented style of governance and for bringing the dividends of democracy to the people of kwara State. She also commends the administration, related agencies and all Kwarans for imbibing the culture and working for a new Kwara.

Democracy Day was held annually on May 29th as it marked the day power was handed to an elected civilian government in 1999. The adoption of June 12 as Democracy Day was done last year by President Buhari to recognise the annulled June I2 1993 general elections.

In light of the recent spike in the rate of rape and other domestic violence incidents in the country, the First Lady reiterated her commitment and that of the Ajike People Support Centre to work assiduously to rid the society of all forms of violence and abuse.

Consequently, the First Lady enjoined all related arms of government, Non Governmental Organisations, religious leaders and other stakeholders to ensure they play their part in ridding our society of these vices.

Dr Abdulrazaq enjoined people to continue to support government policies and programmes to develop the state and create a vibrant economy by eschewing all activities which may threaten the stability and peaceful coexistence the state enjoys.

While she urged the people to continue to adhere to the advisories of government on COVID-19, Her Excellency Dr Mrs Olufolake Abdulrazaq wishes all Kwarans a happy Democracy Day.
