Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, on Wednesday said Nigeria’s democracy still has a long way to go.

Sani said there is so much hunger and hardship in the country amid the Democracy Day celebration.

He was reacting to Tinubu’s Democracy Day promise that his reforms would be fruitful.

Tinubu had said: “The reforms we have initiated are intended to create a stronger, better foundation for future growth. There is no doubt the reforms have occasioned hardship. Yet, they are necessary repairs required to fix the economy over the long run so that everyone has access to economic opportunity, fair pay and compensation for his endeavour and labour.

“As we continue to reform the economy, I shall always listen to the people and will never turn my back on you. In this spirit, we have negotiated in good faith and with open arms with organized labour on a new national minimum wage. We shall soon send an executive bill to the National Assembly to enshrine what has been agreed upon as part of our law for the next five years or less.”

Reacting, Sani wrote on X: “There is so much hardship and hunger in the land.The earlier the reforms bear fruit and end the aggravating poverty in the land the better, safer and more peaceful our country will become.

“We have come a long way, but we also have a long way to go. Democracy should not be a Government installed by the majority for the benefit of a minority.We should not despair to continue to work for a better country.”
