Slow growth rate of Nigeria’s democracy, worrisome- Yerima

Alhaji Shettima Yerima, National President, Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, says the snail speed at which Nigeria’s democracy is growing is “worrisome”.

Yerima, a Human Rights Activist, spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lagos.

The youth leader and member of The Patriots, an eminent group of leaders of thought, spoke when the group visited the residence of late Chief MKO Abiola, the acclaimed winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 Presidential Election.

The group, led by the former Secretary-General of the Commonwealth of Nations, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, went to Abiola’s tomb to pray and to lay wreaths on the occasion of the 2024 anniversary of June 12.

Speaking on 25 years of uninterrupted democracy in Nigeria, Yerima said: “We are still far away from the dreams of our founding fathers.

“We still have a long way to go. That is my worry now,” he said.

Yerima said that Nigeria, at almost 64 years after independence, still needed more work before it could be said to be a country everyone would be proud of.
