Today is Global Democracy day. Global Democracy Day Work Group is working to convince the United Nations to designate this day the official international day for democracy.

Nigeria in particular needs to focus on democracy and the importance of good governance. As many know, the country is currently embattled in the Etteh scandal, the ongoing Aondoakaa vs. Ribadu feud, countless allegations of corruption, murder and all out political drama.

Despite all this, Nigerians can hope that due process and the rule of law will rule the day and that these crucial aspects of democracy (due process and rule of law) will set the necessary precedence for an even better democratic Nigeria. A Nigeria we can all be proud of!

Please visit NIGERIAN LIGHTHOUSE and join in the Global Democracy Day effort!!!!!
