A House of Representative Aspirant for Oyi/Ayamelum Federal constituency of Anambra State, Barr. Ifeyinwa Morah has congratulated the people of the state and Nigerians at the June 12 celebration of the country's Democracy Day. 

She extolled the contributions of the nation's heroes who made immense sacrifice, including paying the supreme price to ensure the entrenchment of democratic rule. 

In a statement on Sunday, she also praised the people of Anambra, particularly her constituents Oyi/Ayamelum Federal constituency for being true ambassadors of democracy, assuring them that their democratic right will be protected if she emerges their representative. 

She added that the true value of Democracy will only be felt by the people, if the right candidates are eventually elected into leadership positions. 

She said, "Nigeria’s democracy did not come on a platter. It took the blood, sweat, and sacrifices of fearless individuals who despite threats, intimidation, and indiscriminate incarcerations fought against military rule until democracy was established for good. While we celebrate the sacrifices these individuals made, we must acknowledge that democracy on its own will not usher in Eldorado.

“To realize our potential as a democratic nation, we must normalize recruiting the best hands to manage public resources. We must evolve a system that throws up the best amongst us to assume leadership positions in the public sector at all levels and to ensure Nigeria re-emerges as a great nation that can lead other African nations."

She also urged for full participation of all eligible citizens in the upcoming 2023 General­čŚ│Elections.
