The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has described the upcoming maiden June 12 Democracy Day celebration as “triumph of people’s will after decades of subversion”.

Mohammed stated this on Wednesday when he featured on African Independent Television programme, “Kakaaki”, monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.

The minister was speaking on activities lined up by the federal government for the May 29 inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari and the first democracy day celebration on June 12.

“For me, the lessons of June 12 is that no matter the situation, the peoples will always triumph.

“Temporarily, you might subvert them but ultimately the peoples will triumph.

According to Mohammed, the celebration is in fulfilment of President Buhari’s declaration last year of June 12 as democracy day and a national holiday with official commencement in 2019.

He said that both chambers of the National Assembly had endorsed the pronouncement.
