I felicitate with the Governor of Delta State, His Excellency, Dr. Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa, the great people of Delta State, and all Nigerians on this occasion of our Democracy Day.

Today, we reflect on the labour of our heroes past and celebrate those who fought for our democracy remembering the price they paid for it. I urge us to look at the possibilities that abound and strive to work harder than ever, not minding the challenges that encumber us as a people. Let us celebrate the achievements we have since recorded, and work towards attaining those ones we so desire as Deltans and as Nigerians.

To the beautiful and enterprising young people of Delta, I implore you to keep striving for gold. Let us remain law-abiding, become involved in governance and learn to be accountable just as we hold our elected leaders accountable.

To sustain our democracy, I call on all Nigerians to continue to have faith in God, have faith in our dear country and faith in one another, understanding that there is power in unity.

I wish Nigeria peace, unity, progress and prosperity. May the story of our freedom continue to be told for generations to come!

God bless Delta State

And God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria
