He exhorted Nigerians to keep up their support for and promotion of democracy by upholding the law.

According to Information Nigeria, the statement partly read, “The Minister felicitates with all Nigerians on the momentous occasion, commending them for their faith in democracy as expressed in the nationwide election that produced the President and his Deputy being inaugurated and indeed in all elections across the nation.

“He said democracy anywhere is an unfinished business and the only way it can keep developing and serve its end of being the vehicle to good governance and the welfare of all the people is by adhering to its tenets of the rule of law, supporting democratic institutions, promotion of free and responsible press and advancement of the frontiers of freedom for all the people.

“Aregbesola urged Nigerians to keep advancing the values of peaceful coexistence and affection for one another, pointing out that only in a peaceful atmosphere can we exercise democracy and reap its benefits.”

The Minister also praised all Nigerians for their efforts in establishing effective government changes and uninterrupted civilian administration since 1999.

The unbridled energy of the populace, he claimed, is the country’s greatest power and would lead the country to its highest height when it is constructively used in its service. He pleaded with them to support and collaborate with the next administration.

However, the Minister urged Nigerians to abstain from all forms of violence and other wrongdoing, assuring them that with everyone working together, the country will succeed in all areas of human development.
