This is the time of truths and of forging the way forward through it all for a greater, more prosperous and egalitarian Nigeria.  The stakeholders in a democracy need necessarily to only become an organized force because nature has ordered that they are the greatest balancing factor in the democratic equation everywhere in the world. With more apt organization and integration of stakeholders in the democratic system, they form the neutral bride – the stock of the common pool – the ones that ensure thus that democracy is more benevolent, beneficial and thus must possess a human face in all aspects of governance.
