SAFIYA BALARABE PRAISES NBA MAKURDI ON LAW WEEK
SAFIYA BALARABE’S GOODWILL MESSAGE TO THE MAKURDI BRANCH ON THE OCCASION OF ITS 2022 LAW WEEK
The 2022 Law Week of the Makurdi branch of the NBA kick-started yesterday, May 27th, 2022. Read below Safiya Balarabe’s message to the branch on this occasion: “Distinguished Chairman, Executives and Members of the Makurdi branch, I extend my regards to you in this period of your Law Week celebration.
The theme: ‘Democracy, Electoral process and the paradigm of change in Nigeria’ is nothing short of apposite. Democracy in its true form portends that elected officials rule with transparency and are accountable to the people from whom they obtained legitimacy. Our Electoral Act though recently amended, still has a long way to go if we truly desire to enhance democracy in government; thus enabling a fully participatory system.
Progress is impossible without change, hence there must be a paradigm shift from the extant arrangement wherein the very people who are to be represented have no say in whom is presented to them for voting. This is necessary to wipe out the totality of the kleptocratic elites that have hindered our country’s development. . Conclusively, as you conclude your Law Week celebration, I strongly believe that you will leave no stone unturned in doing justice to this theme and drive home the all important need for change in our political system. God bless you”.
