Buhari to address the nation on Democracy Day

Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari will on Friday, 10th June, 2020 address the nation.

A statement issued by Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity said the address is in commemoration of Democracy Day.

“To commemorate Nigeria’s Democracy Day, President Muhammadu Buhari will broadcast to the nation on Friday, June 12, 2020 at 7am,” it read.

“Television and radio stations as well as other electronic media outlets are enjoined to hook up to the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority and Radio Nigeria respectively for the broadcast.”

In 2018, Buhari had approved June 12 as Democracy Day to honour MKO Abiola, presumed winner of the 1993 presidential election.

Before 2019, Democracy Day had been observed on May 29.
