PRESIDENT BUHARI'S 2ND TERM INAUGURATION WILL BE A LOW-KEY AFFAIR - FG

President Muhammadu Buhari's inauguration for a second term on May 29,
2019, will be a low-key affair, as a number of the events slated for
the inauguration will now be held during the first observance of June
12 as the National Democracy Day, the Minister of Information and
Culture, Alhaji
Lai Mohammed, has announced.

In a statement in Abuja on Monday, the Minister said the decision to
have a low-key inauguration for the President was taken at the meeting
of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday, 8 May 2019.

He said, however, that invitations have been sent to all world leaders
to attend the ceremonies marking the observance of the Democracy Day
on June 12.

''Since the first observance of June 12 as Democracy Day falls into an
election year, and as a measure to sustain June 12 as Democracy Day,
the celebration of the inauguration and the advancement of democracy
in the country will now take place on June 12,'' Alhaji Mohammed said,
adding that the country can ill-afford two major celebrations within a
two-week interval.

He said the details of the events slated for the two ceremonies will
be unveiled at a world press conference slated for May 20th in Abuja
