The chairman of the organising committee of the first national Democracy Day celebration, Boss Mustapha, on Thursday said that the Federal Government was aware of the apprehension of Nigerians, adding that the speech to be delivered by President Muhammadu Buhari on the day would not disappoint Nigerians.
Mustapha spoke after supervising the Eagle Square venue of the event which comes up on June 12, 2019 in Abuja.
He performed the task with former Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed.
In preparation for the event, the military and police staged a rehearsal which lasted several hours after which Mustapha and Mohammed arrived at the venue for inspection.
He said, “Preparation is going on well for the new national day. The event will witness interplay of military parade and cultural dance. There will be Democracy Day speech by President Buhari. Nigerians are expectant and they will not be disappointed.”
While speaking at a press conference in Abuja ahead of Buhari’s inauguration for a second term, Mohammed had said that world leaders would be invited for the Democracy Day. [PUNCH]
