Democracy Day: Gov. Otu Tasks Citizens, Restates Commitment to All-Inclusive Govt


By Magnus Effiong

The Cross River State Governor, Sen. Prince Bassey Otu, has enjoined citizens of the state to support his administration to succeed as the nation marks the 2023 Democracy Day.

A press release, signed by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Emmanuel Ogbeche, indicated that the Governor said this Monday, through a goodwill message to mark the Day in Calabar.

Gov Otu reminded the people of his administration’s mantra of ‘Peoples First Agenda’ and assured them of his commitment to the economic growth, prosperity and security of all nooks and crannies of the state.

While promising citizens of an all-inclusive government as well as an open door policy, Otu warned against acts that are capable of truncating democratic governance in the state and country at large.

“Having come a long was as a country, we must do even more to preserve this democracy for the sake of posterity.

“Apart from being the fifth conservative democratic transfer of power from one administration to another since the beginning of the 4th Republic, it marks the beginning of a new and critical administration in our almost 23 years of unbroken democratic experience.

“I urge you my dear people, not only to pray for the success of the new administration, but also to work and walk with us to our greatness.

“Let us continue to support the administration of our President, His Excellency, Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as well as the mandate you gave to me and my dear brother, Rt. Hon. Peter Odey,” the Governor said.
