The Government of Osun State on Friday declared Monday as public holiday to mark June 12th celebration in the state.
The statement quoted Adeoti as saying “in line with its established policy of observing June 12th of every year as Democracy Day, the State Government of Osun has declared Monday, June 13th as public holiday”.
He stated that the public holiday became imperative in view of the fact that June 12th this year fell on a Sunday.
NAN also reports that Late Bashorun Moshood Abiola was believed to have won the election, but it was annulled by the then military head of state,General Ibrahim Babangida.
The defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN)-controlled states have, however, been celebrating the date as democracy day./a
