Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has given his words about Nigeria being a safe haven for visiting world leaders who have invited to attend the record activities of the maiden new democracy day, June 12.

He gave these remarks while talking at a world press conference at the FCT on Monday organized to roll out events for both the inauguration day and democracy day, May 29 and June 12 respectively.

“I can assure you Nigeria is safe for all the world leaders to come and attend. Swear-in of the President and Vice President is slated for Wednesday, May 29 at the Eagles Square, followed by a state banquet at the state house in the evening of the same day.”

“The events celebrating the June 12 and Democracy Day will start off on Friday, June 7, while Tuesday, June 11 will feature three events; the PMB oratorical contest at ICC, an Anti-corruption summit at Transcorp Hilton and the First Lady’s commissioning programme in Yola, Adamawa State.

“Wednesday, June 12 will start off with a parade at the eagle square and the democracy programme will wrap up with a dinner and gala night at the statehouse conference center.” He added.

“On the issue of public holiday, I believe that May 29 still remains a public holiday, of course, June 12, the National Assembly has proclaimed a national holiday.”
