Photos from the June 12 Democracy Day celebration at Eagles Square

President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived Eagles Square, the venue for the June 12 Democracy Day celebration.

He arrived the venue at exactly 10:14am to meet dignitaries and many Nigerians who were already there waiting.

Spotted at the Eagles Square is Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and other APC chieftains.

Buhari will be delivering his inauguration speech today which he didn’t do on May 29 when he was sworn-in for a second term in office.

Meanwhile, former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, FFK, has reacted to the ongoing celebrations at the Eagles Square. According to him, it is not enough that June 12 got declared Democracy Day. He says it is also necessary that the killers of MKO Abiola whom the day honors, are brought to book.

He tweeted:

“The best way to honor MKO Abiola is not just to declare June 12th as Democracy Day but to also bring those that killed him to justice. They must be exposed and prosecuted for murder. It is only after that is done that the ghost of June 12th will die and Nigeria will know peace”.

He added:

“One of the questions that previous govt’s have to answer is why they refused to honor Chief MKO Abiola and declare June 12th as the authentic Democracy Day?

No matter what we may feel about @MBuhari at least he found the courage to do that whilst others failed”.
