What Nigerians Are Tweeting on #DemocracyDay

 

Democracy Day is a public holiday in Nigeria. It is held annually on May 29. This public holiday commemorates the restoration of democracy in the Federal Republic of Nigeria, when the newly elected Olusegun Obasanjo took office as the President of Nigeria in May 1999 ending multiple decades of military rule that began in 1966 and had been interrupted only by a brief period of democracy from 1979 to 1983.

After many years, Nigerians are yet to really get what it entails to be a democracy. See tweets below:

We keep believing that we’ll get good leaders that would make the people  proud. We are still in search of that visionary leader.
