President Muhammadu Buhari has commended former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, taunting him as the one who saved democracy.
Buhari said this at the launch of the book titled “Standing Strong:Legislative Reforms, Third Term and Other Issues of the 5th Senate,” written by Nnamani.
At an event in Abuja where he was represented by the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, Buhari said the author’s selflessness with that his colleagues set Nigeria on a better path to democracy.
He said: “We thank Senator Nnamani and his colleagues at the National Assembly for standing strong in carrying out their constitutional duty in the defence of democracy in our dear country, Nigeria.
“We have had a President handed over power to another President elected on the platform of the same political party. In 2015, an opposition political party defeated a sitting President and our democracy witnessed a smooth transfer of power from one political party to another. Our democracy is growing and can be said to be matured.
“Though, we have multiple political parties, two are dominant as they both have presence in each of the six geo-political zones of the country.”“Standing Strong:Legislative Reforms, Third Term and Other Issues of the 5th Senate,”
