DPC Advocates Democracy Without Corruption [Leadership Newspaper]

The Democratic People’s Congress (DPC) has advocated the building of  sound democracy without corruption, saying it is possible to achieve with the collective efforts of all Nigerians.

The national chairman of DPC, Rev Olusegun Peters, made this assertion in a paper entitled: “How We Can Build A Sound Democracy Without Corruption”, he presented at the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Conference, held in Abuja, yesterday, adding that Nigerians should “ensure that our democracy is built on a sound foundation without corruption.”

He said to deepen democracy without corruption, the people must be empowered to significantly influence decisions affecting their lives and hold their elected leaders accountable for their actions.

He said: “Governments at all levels are expected to provide dividends of democracy to the people and improve their standards of living. The inability of various governments to protect the lives and property of the citizenry and provide good governance is the remote cause of political instability, economic stagnation, under-development and corruption.

“No nation develops without implementing people- oriented projects and programmes that will alleviate the sufferings of the populace and reinforce their confidence in the government they voted to power.”

Speaking on the role of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and political parties, he said in any democratic governance, the INEC and political parties play important roles in the emergence of credible candidates for elections.
