Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, has announced that Nigerian Democracy Day, to be marked every June 12, would not be a non-working public holiday in Nigeria, in 2018, as Democracy Day was already celebrated last month as a non-working public holiday in Nigeria ("The investiture will take place on Tuesday June 12th, 2018, a date which in future years will replace May 29th as a National Public Holiday in celebration of Nigeria Democracy Day").

Earlier this week (06-Jun-2018), Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, announced that, effective from next year, Nigerian Democracy Day would be marked every June 12 in honor of the acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, late Chief Moshood Abiola, as was done, over the years, by many Nigerian states as a regional state public holiday (09-Jun-2017, 10-Jun-2014, 09-Jun-2013, 25-Nov-2012, 09-Jun-2012, 10-Jun-2011, 06-Jul-2010, 11-Jun-2010, 15-Jun-2009, 11-Jun-2009, 11-Jun-2008, 10-Jun-2006).

In the past (25-May-2018, 18-May-2017, 25-May-2016, 25-May-2015, 22-May-2014, 24-May-2013, 27-Apr-2012, and 24-May-2011), May 29 was declared as a non-working public holiday in Nigeria, corresponding to Democracy Day.
