Buhari Signs June 12 Bill Into Law As Democracy Day


President Muhammadu Buhari has signed into law the bill making June 12 of every year a national public holiday and Democracy Day.


By this act, June 12 replaces May 29 as Democracy Day and national public holiday.


However, May 29 will remain the handing over date but not as a public holiday.


The senior special assistant to the president on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, disclosed this to State House correspondents yesterday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja soon after the bill was assented to by Buhari.
