In a move described by observers as a ‘master stroke’, President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that, henceforth, the nation’s Democracy Day will be holding on June 12 of every year, as against the current arrangement where the ceremony holds on May 29.
This enchantingly new development is contained in a statement he personally signed on Wednesday.
As if the June 12 recognition is not enough, Buhari also announce that he has decided to honour the symbol and winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election, Chief Moshood Kashimawo Abiola, with the highest national honour, Grand Commander of the Federal Republic.
In the specially released statement, Buhari equally announced that he reached the decisions after due consultations with stakeholders.
