Senate okays June 12 as Democracy Day in Nigeria
The Senate passed the bill seeking to legalise June 12 as Democracy Day just like the House of Representatives had already done.
If the bill is assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari, May 29 celebrated as Democracy Day since 2000 will cease to be so marked.
It also means that June 12 of every year will replace May 29 as Democracy Day in the country if the bill is signed by Buhari
Buhari, had in June 2018, as a way to immortalise late Chief M.K.O Abiola, the acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 Presidential election, declared June 12 as the new Democracy Day.To Receive Latest Music, Video & News Updates , Add Us To Your WhatsApp: 08035927807; BBM Pin: D1C43241
