An Aspirant for Edo state House of Assembly in Owan East constituency on Tuesday, said democracy, despite its limitations and challenges, remains the best form of government anywhere in the world.

In his message to mark Nigeria’s Democracy Day, Com. Omoarebu Zillian Eromosei explained that the freedom of choice is one of the most important ingredients of the democratic system.

According to him, the freedom to choose leaders makes democracy fashionable, adding that any system that subverts the will of the people destroys the progress of the society.

As an active participant in the democratic struggle in Nigeria and an ardent proponent of the rule of law, rather than the rule of man, I recognises the sacrifices of gallant Nigerians whose struggles brought the nation to this current stage.

According to him, as Nigerians' celebrate democracy day, the memory of late Shehu Yar’Adua, MKO Abiola, Admiral Aikomu and Chief Anthony Enahoro would resonate across the country, adding that the sacrifices of countless others who paid the supreme price for opposing dictatorship would also not be forgotten.

Eromosei says no sane society would choose despotism over democracy because, under dictatorship, dissent is met with death or torture.

On the current challenges facing the ordinary Nigerians, Com. Eromosei affirmed that no democratically elected government would intentionally hurt the voters that put her into office.

He explained that the APC administration remains committed to the welfare of Nigerians, and that the current challenges are temporary.

"The like of Com. Adams Aliu Oshiomole becoming the next national chairman will further strengthen democracy in the ruling All Progressive party and Nigerian government in general".

With the experience garnered by Comr Adams Oshiomole in the Nigeria Labour Congress and as two term Governor of Edo state, he has always practice true democracy thus, becoming the next national chairman of APC means Nigeria is in safe hands.

Com. Eromosei urged Nigerian youths not to lose hope because of the current temporary challenges that they are going through. "This is a call for all Nigerian youth both at home and in diaspora to be actively involved in the politics of today because you are not too young to run as elected official in Democratic government.

"Once again I want to wish all Nigerians a happy Democracy day".
