The Senator-Elect, Akogun Lere Oyewumi is delighted to join millions of patriotic Nigerians all over the world to celebrate Democracy Day.

“I join esteemed constituents of the Osun West Senatorial District and Nigerians in general in commemorating 2023 Democracy Day. No doubt, the democratic journey that started in 1999 is not without hiccups. The challenges notwithstanding, we should not be quick to dismiss the commemoration of Democracy Day especially the tortuous June 12 struggle as a non-event. Because it’s more than just a date for the Nigerians as it represents a milestone in the journey to entrench a democratic polity” he said.
