NO PUBLIC HOLIDAY ON JUNE 12 THIS YEAR


The Federal Government has announced that June 12 this year will not be marked as a public holiday following its declaration as the new Democracy Day.
In a tweet on Friday, the Federal Government said while it will not be marked this year, June 12 “in future years will replace May 29th as a national public holiday in celebration of Nigeria Democracy Day.”
The President had made the declaration on Wednesday, in honour of the late businessman and politician, Moshood Abiola, who ran for presidency on June 12, 1993.
He also conferred a posthumous GCFR title on him as the presumed winner of the election. In a tweet on his official handle, he explained why June 12 will replace May 29. He noted that June 12 is a more symbolic day.
