Malami-on-state-procecute

Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, said that June 12 is not yet a public holiday, in spite of President Muhammadu Buhari declaring it the democracy day.

Malami addressing the state house correspondents at the presidential villa, Abuja, said the existing public holiday act must be amended to give a legal backing to the declaration.

The justice minister responding to questions from the correspondents explained that a process has been initiated to amend the act to reflect the declaration.

Buhari declared June 12 to honor the acclaimed winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential poll, Late Bashorun Moshood Abiola, but the presidency said June 12 is not yet a public holiday.
