The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Friday urged Nigerians to guard the country’s democracy jealously and protect it with everything.
Saraki gave the advice in Lagos while speaking at the 4th Anniversary Lecture of The Niche Newspapers. He was represented by Senator Ben Murray-Bruce at the event.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the theme of the lecture was: “Development Reporting and Hysteria Journalism in Nigeria”.
Saraki admitted that although the system was yet to be perfect, democracy was still the best way to realise the country’s development aspirations.
“We must preserve democracy at all costs. It is the duty of everyone, all the citizens of the country.
“No matter the problems we are facing, democracy is still the best form of government to guarantee development,” he said.
