Just In: House In Rowdy Session Over Buhari’s Declaration Of June 12 As Democracy Day
The session of the House of Representatives has become rowdy as members disagree over the declaration of June 12 as new Democracy Day by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, is trying to keep rowdy members on control for debate to continue.
President Buhari, on Wednesday, directed that the nation’s Democracy Day will, henceforth, hold on June 12 of every year as against the current arrangement where the ceremony holds on May 29.
Buhari also resolved to honour the winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election, Chief Moshood Abiola, with the highest national honour, the Grand Commander of the Federal Republic.
