Previously, this holiday was celebrated on May 29th, but in 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari signed into law the amendment of the Public Holiday Act, which declared June 12th as the new Democracy Day. The day is typically marked with various activities and ceremonies, including speeches by government officials, parades, cultural displays, and public gatherings. It provides an opportunity for political leaders to address the nation and highlight their achievements, as well as outline their plans for the future.
