“The answer is NO.

“Presidential Order says June 12 ‘in FUTURE YEARS will replace May 29th as a National Public Holiday in celebration of Nigeria Democracy Day’,” the post read.

This confirms report earlier this week.

Our correspondent had reached out to a source in the presidency, to make clarifications and it was gathered that the date will be a public holiday in future years, not 2018.

“It starts from next year,” the source simply said.

He also insisted that May 29 remains the handover/swearing-in day and President Muhammadu Buhari is not planning to extend his stay in office by two weeks, in an eventuality he loses next year’s elections.
