FORMER Lagos State governor and the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Bola Tinubu, has said that Nigeria has been liberated from what he termed “years of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) misrule” after Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in as the new President of the country.

He also envisioned a new nation where everything intended can be achieved.

In a statement issued on Friday May 29, 2015 to mark the Democracy Day titled, ‘A new Nigeria is possible beginning today,’ Tinubu urged Nigerians to continue to hold public office holders responsible to ensure that their struggle is not in vain.

He said: “Today, the old Nigeria is no longer in chains as we move into a new era and take hold of our new selves.

“From President (Muhammadu) Buhari to the state governors inaugurated this day, I wish them well and pray they govern in an open, democratic way that assures your optimal well being.

“I ask that you, the people, maintain your diligence and help guide those you have just elected. The issues that confront us are deep and complex.

“They are not susceptible to facile solution or inattention. Wise and sound policy is within our capacity.

“But, we must have the will to accomplish it. If the governed and the government work in league, there is nothing our beloved nation cannot overcome.”

Tinubu stressed that this year’s Democracy Day would be recorded in history as the moment when “democracy finally was allowed to participate in Democracy Day.”

According to him, “this is so because millions of average Nigerians voted to make sure Buhari won the March 28 presidential poll.”
