Abydeen noted that, “late Mashood Abiola (GCFR), is celebrated because of his selflessness and commitment to the ideals of good governance and popular democracy.

“This is a lesson for politicians of today to emulate. The country, at this time, is in dire need of patriots who will be ready to sacrifice themselves for the general good of the people. As people who mean well for the nation, we must make sacrifices and render public service with or without monetary benefits”.

The guild which is a registered union of professional investigative journalists urges Nigerians to remain united and bury their differences so as to facilitate even development that would further strengthen the nation’s democracy.
“Our unity is for our collective advantage as this is needed to take collective responsibility and decisions needed to put an end to bad governance in the country.” NGIJ stated.
