Hon. Shehu Nicholas Garba (Sarkin-noma), the Representative of Jema’a/Sanga at the National Assembly and Chairman House Committee on Anti-Corruption has congratulated Nigerians and particularly his Constituents on the occasion of Democracy Day and the Anniversary of his swearing-in into his current tenure as a Federal Lawmaker and for the feat recorded by the Country for the 21 years of unbroken democracy.
He called for Unity and Peaceful coexistence amongst his constituents, stressing that it is needed for the attraction of democratic dividends.
The Lawmaker further called on his constituents to continue to play their roles in deepening Democracy by not only actively participating in the electoral process but also constantly engaging elected and appointed officers on their mandate.
He assured them of his commitment to support the Amendment of the Electoral Act and the Country’s Constitution to accommodate electronic Voting which will completely surrender power to the thumb of the voter not the sharp practices of Anti-Democratic agents.
