Ogun rolls out activities to celebrate Democracy Day

By Demilade Michael

The Ogun State government on Monday rolled activities to commemmorate this year’s Democracy Day on Wednesday, June 12.

A statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Tokunbo Talabi, said that a special memorial prayer will be held at the family house of late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola at Ọja Agbo, Gbágùrá, Abeokuta by 8:00 am.

Talabi added that, “This will be followed by a commemorative lecture with the theme: “June 12 Defining Moment in The Democratic Development in Nigeria” to be delivered by a Public Affairs Analyst, Mr. Richard Akinnola, beginning from 10: 00 am. at the Hubert Ogunde Hall, June 12 Cultural Centre Kuto, Abeokuta.”

The statement urged guests to be seated by 9:30 am.

Abiola, a business mogul, was believed to have won the June 12, 1993, presidential election, which was annulled by the military government of General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd) and later died in detention on July 7, 1998, while trying to reclaim his annulled mandate.
