Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, who provided information about this year’s celebration said the president’s message will be on the celebration of Democracy Day.
“The minister who briefed the media on plans for this year’s celebration said about four activities have been lined up for the day including a public lecture at the National Mosque on Friday and Jumat prayers on the same date and venue, followed by the President’s address and a church service at the National Christian Centre at 3 pm on Sunday.
“The celebration will be concluded with a national parade at the Eagle Square in Abuja on Monday, June 13,” .
