Democracy Day: House Of Reps In Rowdy Session Over June 12 Declaration

The Federal House of Representatives at the National Assembly in Abuja is currently in a rowdy session over the recently declared Democracy Day.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to declare June 12 as Nigeria’s Democracy Day in honour of late M.K.O Abiola, has caused a rowdy session at the House of Representatives, Abuja.
It was gathered that while some lawmakers supported it, others asked the President to rescind his decision.
Some of the lawmakers also kicked against the honour given to Abiola, the presumed winner of the June 12,1993 presidential election.
Some lawmakers who also spoke on the issue said there is need to ensure the rule of law is followed regarding the matter, while others spoke in favour of the president’s decision.
