Democracy Day 2018: True Democracy Empowers the People to demand for their constitutional rights - Eta Mbora

Member representing Calabar Municipality/Odukpani Federal constituency at the green chambers, Rt. Hon. Eta Mbora has said that true democracy is that which gives power to the people to place a demand on their leaders to deliver on their constitutional rights. 

Rt. Hon. Mbora made this known in a Felicitation message to the President Federal Republic of Nigeria, The Leadership of the National Assembly, The Government, and people of Cross River state, as well as his immediate constituency of Calabar Municipality/Odukpani.

The National lawmaker praised the leadership of his state governor, sen. Prof Ben Ayade for sustaining the dividends of democracy on the people of Cross River state, stating that the Peoples Democratic (PDP) as the single largest political party in Africa has continually ensured true principles of democracy are upheld and making sure the dividends of democracy gets to the people.

The message reads in Full: 

'Today as we celebrate 19 years of uninterrupted democracy in our dear country, Nigeria, it is worthy to note the leading role of our great country in upholding the core principles of democracy and what this means for the sustenance of peace and security as well as the rule of law in Nigeria, nay Africa.

May I use this auspicious occasion of our nation's democracy day celebration to appreciate the largest single political party in Africa, The Peoples Democratic (PDP) for ensuring that the true principles of democracy are upheld and making sure the dividends of democracy gets to the people.

I want to on this occasion celebrate his Excellency, Prof Senator Ben Ayade, the digital Governor of Cross River State and his deputy, Prof Ivara Esu and the good people of Calabar municipality/Odukpani Federal constituency who have continuously believed in my capacity to effectively represent them in the green chambers as this trust they have in me have yielded fruits in no small measures as we have indeed made our people felt the real dividends of democracy through various people-oriented projects and programmes.

As we all know true democracy is that which empowers the people to demand for their constitutional rights and not that which empowers public office holders to embezzle public funds. 
It is on this note that I want to specially appeal to the good people of cross river state to continually believe in the true democratic party, that is the PDP as we will ensure that power will truly reside with the people.

I celebrate the leadership of my family, the PDP at all levels as I wish every true Democrat a happy democracy day.'

Long live the PDP
Long live Calabar Municipality/Odukpani Federal Constituency
Long live Cross River state 
Long live Nigeria
