2 min read

The Accountable Leadership for Better Nigeria Initiative (ALBNI) has called on the Federal Government to urgently address the issue of violence in elections, vote buying, underage voting, compromised electoral officials, low voter turnout and many other still pose serious threats to growing our electoral culture and in recruiting genuine leaders across boards.

In a press release signed ALBNI President, Remi Adebayo, he called on Nigerians for continued faith in Nigeria’s democracy, supporting the Leaders to improve on noted weaknesses and being a channel through which generations can embrace our commitment to nation building.

Excerpt is the full text of the press release

Again, Today June 12, gives the Nigerian people another opportunity to reflect on the path the Nation’s Democracy has taken in the past years since returning to civil rule in 1999.

Although, we have not attained the best this can offer us, seeing some imperfections still being encountered along the way; issues of violence in elections, vote buying, underage voting, compromised electoral officials, low voter turnout and many other still pose serious threats to growing our electoral culture and in recruiting genuine leaders across boards.

But all hope is not lost! We can boldly say the journey since 1999 has similarly afforded us some leverage to participate individually and together in the process on raising the points of advocacy in boosting the people’s ownership of this democracy.

We therefore cannot relent, as more is still demanded from us in the years coming to transfer to our offsprings a nation and its democratic possession for which they can globally cherish and flaunt in pride.

It is on this task, that we call on us, for continued faith in our democracy, supporting our Leaders to improve on noted weaknesses, and being a channel through which generations can embrace our commitment to nation building.

Happy Democracy Day and May God bless our Dear nation – Nigeria.

Congratulations ALBNI for the progress made so far.
