In a statement issued to congratulate the speaker and his deputy,  Sulaiman Lasun, Kurfi noted that the nation’s democracy has finally coming of age adding that the event of last Tuesday has produced no hero or villain but high regards for democratic ethos have been upheld by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
