Aregbe commends Buhari, Tinubu on June 12 initiative

The Lagos State Youth Organising Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Hon. Aregbe Idris, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on the move towards the legalisation of June 12 as the nation’s official Democracy Day.

Aregbe said this while dressing newsmen today in Lagos.

The youth leader said the date was not only befitting for the affairs of the nation but also a deserving honour and respect for an icon of modern-day democracy, late Chief Moshood Abiola.

Aregbe stated, “President Buhari’s signing of June 12 as Democracy Day does not only acknowledge MKO’s irrefutable strides but also epitomises his legacy as a true-hearted nationalist that fought for the good of Nigeria and the people.”

“Beyond the legalisation of June 12, the APC as a party, has proven to the world that it rewards patriotism – a virtue that is uncommon with other parties in the country.

“For this, I salute the national leader of our great party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for his leadership qualities and other stakeholders, who have continued to be shining examples for young and aspiring leaders to emulate.”

Aregbe further noted that the signing marked a new era of democratic rule in the country, adding, “It is a brilliant strategy for Democrats in the nation to give adequate attention to issues that have of great importance to the nation, which are effectual in strengthening the fabric of peace, unity and the common progress of Nigeria.”

The signing of the Public Holiday (Amendment) Bill was confirmed on Monday by the National Assembly Liaison Officer to the President, Senator Ita Enang.
