By Valentine Amanze

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated Nigerians on the occasion of the 2020 Democracy Day.
The party also said that the declaration of June 12 as Nigeria's Democracy Day by the APC-led Federal Government, further cemented the credentials of President Muhammadu Buhari as a true and genuine democrat.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the party stated that Buhari displayed political will in recognising and appreciating the sacrifices of many Nigerians in the enthronement of democracy in Nigeria and the ultimate prize paid by the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 Presidential Election, Chief Moshood Abiola.
According to the ruling party, “In the annals of our nation's political trajectory, June 12 would remain an historic day. This undisputed fact, which President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has officially recognised as a national holiday, is a testament of our party's appreciation of the huge significance of the day.”
The party also promised to continue to promote and consolidate on the gains of democratic governance in the country, with a view to entrenching its finest ideals on the nation’s body polity, while calling on Nigerians to imbibe this spirit in the overall interest of the country.
