“The party urged the military in African countries to resist temptation of taking laws into their hand at the slightest opportunity of social crisis in a country.

“The military must be reminded that development of democracy in Africa’s developing economies with high level of ignorance amongst the populace is an arduous task demanding considerable mental effort and set of skills to accomplish. adsbygoogle || []).push({});

“Building democracy in Africa requires all hands on deck, especially the military whose primary assignment is to preserve and protect the territorial integrity of their countries while they remain subservient to the civilian government which must be allowed to make mistakes and correct them as a way of strengthening good governance under democracy being the only civilized form of government all over the world.

“On Thursday, a Military coup leader, Assimi Goita, declared himself as the head of the country, against the tenet of democratic governments in African countries.”

ADP reiterated its call on Nigerian government, who is seen as a big brother to all other African nations, to step in, by working with African Union (AU), UN and other organizations, so that the country can return to democratic government.

The party also commended the former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, who has been an envoy on peaceful resolution of crisis that has been rocking the country.

It is important that all all actors in this crisis, put aside their personal agenda, at least for the interest of all Citizens of the country.

It is also important that, this crisis should not give room to militias, and insurgents, who may now have a field day, because of the ongoing political turmoil, the party said.
