Ogun declares Monday public holiday to mark June 12

Monday, June 12, has been declared a public holiday by the Ogun state government to mark the twenty fourth anniversary of the annulled June 12, 1993  presidential poll.

The state government in a statement by the secretary to the state government, Taiwo Adeoluwa, explained that the day is set aside to honour late Bashorun Moshood Kashimawo Abiola, believed to have won the poll cancelled by the Babangida military regime.

This year’s celebration, according to Adeoluwa, will feature a “Democracy Walk” to be led by Governor Ibikunle Amosun from the June 12 Cultural Centre, Kuto, Abeokuta at 7 am in the morning.

The walk will take participants through major roads in the state capital, ending at the family house of late MKO Abiola at Gbagura in Abeokuta where special prayers and speeches will be made.

Later in the day, a stage play, titled  “Oju Kelekun” (farewell to reproach) directed by Prof. Bakare Ojo Rasaki will be performed at the June 12 Cultural Centre between 3:45 pm  and 6:00pm.
