The Lagos, Ogun and Osun state governments have declared Tuesday, June 12, 2018, work-free to enable residents and other stakeholders to mark the Democracy Day.
This was contained in separate statements by the three states.
The Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, in a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Tunji Bello, said the significance of June 12, 1993, elections, adjudged as the freest and fairest in the history of Nigeria, would always be a reference point in the state’s quest to entrench true democracy in service to the people.
According to a statement signed by the Secretary to the Ogun State Government, Taiwo Adeoluwa, the day would also be used to celebrate the recent conferment of a posthumous national honour of Grand Commander of the Federal Republic on the acclaimed winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 Presidential election, Chief Moshood Kasimawo Olawale Abiola.
The Commissioner for Home Affairs in Osun State, Dr. Obawale Adebisi, also said in a statement that the public holiday was in line with a policy of the state to observe June 12 as Democracy Day every year.
The Oyo State Government has also declared Tuesday, June 12, 2018 as a public holiday throughout the state.
The State Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Mr. Toye Arulogun said the holiday was to commemorate the anniversary of the June 12 1993 election generally and widely believed to have been won by Late Bashorun MKO Abiola.
Arulogun expressed satisfaction that 25 years after the election adjudged to be the freest and fairest in the history of Nigeria, the winner, the late Chief M. K. O. Abiola, was recognised by the Federal Government.
