The Federal Government has announced Monday, June 12, as a public holiday to mark this year’s Democracy Day celebration.
The Permanent Secretary, Dr Oluwatoyin Akinlade, confirmed this on Thursday.
“Nigeria’s democratic journey has, like in many other climes, encountered both stormy and smooth sails, but the ship of State, its institutions and most importantly, the Nigerian people, have remained steadfast on the tenets of democratic governance.
“On this memorable occasion therefore, Nigerians and friends of Nigeria are invited to appreciate the progress that has been made, celebrate the milestones covered and look forward to a better future for the country’s democracy,” he said.
The Permanent Secretary wished all Nigerians a Happy Democracy Day celebration.
