Former President Goodluck Jonathan has called on Nigerians to protect the country’s democracy from derailing towards dictatorship. Jonathan spoke at the 70th birthday of Mathew Kukah, Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, in Abuja, on Wednesday.

He said Nigeria is a work in progress and asked citizens not to lower their guard and allow democracy to crumble. He advised leaders to accommodate different views, adding that democracy is not about winning elections alone.

“Looking at the states and so on, we are derailing towards quasi-fascist form of government, but democracy is not only about winning elections alone, it is about accommodation. We, as leaders at the centre and at the state levels, especially at this time when elections are coming, must accommodate different views”.
