MMM-Nigeria, a group for mutual financial aid and donations, on Monday, organised a green party show in Abuja to celebrate Nigeria’s Democracy Day.
Vanguard reported that the party, which held at the Millennium Park, was opened to members of the group and non-members alike.
The President of Abuja Guiders Forum of the MMM-Nigeria Mr Seyi Bello said the gesture was part of solidarity by the group for Nigeria’s 18-years of uninterrupted democracy.
“This party is put together to celebrate our Democracy Day and since Nigeria’s flag is green-white-green, we decided to call it ‘green party’ as a mark of solidarity.
“We invited everyone to be a part of this event because friendship and unity is what this community of mutual help represents.
“As a community, we do not only provide help to our members, we also extend that to the larger society as part of our social responsibility,” he said.
However, he called on leaders at all levels to deliver basic dividends of democracy to Nigerians, adding that the current recession was affecting ordinary Nigerians.
