#FG Releases Plan For Democracy Day Celebration

By HEADLINENEWS.NEWS Correspondent 

The federal government has released a list of events for this year’s Democracy Day celebration on June 12.

This was contained in a notice issued by Abdulhakeem Adeoye on behalf of the Director of Information and Public Relations in the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation on Sunday, June 9, 2024.

According to the notice, the celebration will commence on Tuesday, June 11, with a symposium at the State House Conference Centre, Presidential Villa, Abuja, at 9am.

This will be followed by a youth conference at Ladi Kwali Hall, Abuja Continental Hotel, Abuja, at 6:00pm.

On Wednesday, June 12, the events will feature a grand parade at Eagle Square, Abuja, starting at 8:00am.

The day will conclude with a dinner at the State House Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja, at 6:00pm.

“The programmes lined up for the celebration include a symposium on Tuesday, June 11, at 9:00 AM at the State House Conference Centre, Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“Later that day, a youth conference will be held at Ladi Kwali Hall, Abuja Continental Hotel, Abuja, at 6:00pm.

“A grand parade will take place on Wednesday, June 12, at 8:00am at Eagle Square, Abuja,” followed by “a dinner at the State House Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja, at 6:00pm,” the notice stated.

Only accredited Villa correspondents will be granted access to cover the events held at the Presidential Villa.

Last week, Tinubu, the first June 12 activist to become Nigeria’s leader, declined a national broadcast on May 29, saying he would do so on June 12.

May 29 used to be Democracy Day until immediate past President Muhammadu Buhari effected a change in 2018 declaring June 12 as the new Democracy Day in honour of Abiola.

This year’s democracy day is the 31st anniversary of the annulled June 12, 1993, presidential poll won by the late business mogul and politician, Chief MKO Abiola.
