Democracy Day broadcast : IPAC lauds President Buhari’s score card

By Adeyemi Adeleye
The All-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) praised President Muhammadu Buhari’s scorecards in his Democracy Day 2021 broadcast, urging increased engagement in tackling insecurity in the country.

Reacting to the show, IPAC President in Lagos State, Mr. James Adeshina, told the Nigerian News Agency (NAN) that the president appeared to be a “caring father” , but called for an end to unnecessary killings by bandits.

Adeshina, who urged the president to act faster to stem growing cases of insecurity, however advised Nigerians to support the government by being security-conscious because the government could not do it alone.

He said: “This is what the president signed. Its main responsibility is to protect the life and property of Nigerians and the well-being of the people. He works but we demand more.

“The president should redouble his efforts to end the banditry, kidnappings and all the unrest the country is currently facing. Nigerians believe he is able and has the power to provide security and to ensure the security of property and lives.

“The president has really tried to resolve the issue of insecurity in Nigeria, but I think the president needs to do more. Nigerians demand more of him.

The IPAC chairman urged security chiefs to step up their game and do better than their predecessors to return Nigeria to its former peaceful state.

He said Nigerians would not mark the president if efforts were not made to stem the tides of insecurity and fight poverty in the country.

Regarding the president’s determination to reform the electoral process, Adeshina said the only way to deepen Nigerian democracy is to ensure that the will of the people always prevails in elections.

He said the electoral manipulation and rigging that typically made bad leaders appear to be stopped if the nation adopted accreditation, voting and vote counting technologies during elections.

The President of the IAC said that the ongoing revision of the 1999 Constitution should be an opportunity to bequeath free, fair, transparent and credible elections to Nigeria and to mature the country’s democracy.

“We need a state of emergency in reforming our electoral system in Nigeria so that we can improve our democracy and enjoy the dividends of democracy.

“We are a leading country in Africa, we are supposed to be at the forefront of elections and democracy. Electronic voting is what IPAC seriously advocates, ”he said.

On poverty and unemployment, Adeshina said the president should do more as many Nigerians are wallowing in poverty and unemployment.

He said more should be done in the area of ​​the economy to create jobs and reduce the rate of inflation.

Adeshina urged the president to use good hands and good brains to work on the country’s economy to reduce poverty and unemployment, which he said are the root of insecurity.

President Muhammadu Buhari had, in a nationwide broadcast on Saturday, presented his administration’s dashboard and assured Nigerians of his commitment to improving security and reducing poverty. (NAA)
