President Muhammadu Buhari’s
inauguration for a second term on
May 29, will be a low-key affair, as
a number of the events slated for
the inauguration will now be held
during the first observance of June
12 as the National Democracy Day,
the Minister of Information and
Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has
announced. Lai told State House
reporters that the decision to have
a low-key inauguration for the
President was taken at the meeting
of the Federal Executive Council
(FEC) on Wednesday, 8 May 2019.
He said, however, that invitations
have been sent to all world leaders
to attend the ceremonies marking
the observance of the Democracy
Day on June 12. ”Since the first
observance of June 12 as
Democracy Day falls into an
election year, and as a measure to
sustain June 12 as Democracy Day,
the celebration of the inauguration
and the advancement of democracy
in the country will now take place
on June 12,” he said.
He said that the country cannot
afford to have two major
celebrations within a two-week
interval. He said the details of the
events slated for the two
ceremonies will be unveiled at a
world press conference slated for
May 20th in Abuja
