PRESS RELEASE: PRESIDENT BUHARI’S 2ND TERM INAUGURATION WILL BE A LOW-KEY AFFAIR Being Text of a press conference addressed by the Hon Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, at the State House in Abuja on Monday, May 13th 2019
President @MBuhari‘s inauguration for a second term on May 29, 2019, 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
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.
The country can ill-afford two major celebrations within a two-week interval. Details of the events slated for the two ceremonies will be unveiled at a world press conference slated for May 20th in Abuja.
