ITREALMS, the Hon Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said at the State House in Abuja on Monday, May 13th 2019 that 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.

"However, invitations have been sent to all world leaders to attend the ceremonies marking the observance of the Democracy Day on June 12," he said.

He further explained that "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. The country can ill-afford two major celebrations within a two-week interval.

ITREALMS gathered that details of the events slated for the two ceremonies will be unveiled at a world press conference slated for May 20th in Abuja.
