The Federal Government says it had invited world leaders to the maiden edition of June 12th Democracy Day in Nigeria.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed stated this at a news briefing to mark the commencement of activities slated for the inauguration of the second term of President Buhari.
The Minister however, explained that while Buhari would be inaugurated on May 29th, the government’s Democracy Day activities would hold mostly on June 12th. He noted the two days would still be observed as public holidays in the country.
Mohammed also said despite the security concerns being raised in some quarters, the country was safe for the celebrations. He said the presidential inauguration on May 29th would remain low-key because Nigeria could not afford two elaborate celebrations within two weeks.
He also said the official commencement of the new Democracy Day would be in 2019.
