THE Federal Government on Monday declared Wednesday, June 12, as a public holiday, to commemorate Nigeria’s National Democracy Day.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Georgina Ehuriah, made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government in a statement signed by Mohammed Manga, Director Press & Public Relations, of the ministry, on Monday in Abuja.

The Federal Government’s decision followed the enactment into law of June 12 as Democracy Day annually in Nigeria.

The permanent secretary called on Nigerians to continue to cherish the sacrifice made by heroes of democracy in the country.

She emphasised that those who lost their lives in the struggle for the actualisation of Democratic Governance in Nigeria in order to make the country a better place for all, must not be forgotten.
