Disclosing this in a press conference, Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, opined that all programmes and event billed for the day will be shifted on June 12 as the National Democracy Day.

His words, “President Muhammadu Buhari’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

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.

However, 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. 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
