Osun State Government, yesterday declared Monday public holiday to mark June 12 celebration.
This was contained in statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti.
The statement quoted Adeoti as saying: “In line with its established policy of observing June 12 of every year as Democracy Day, the State Government of Osun has declared Monday, June 13 as public holiday.”
He stated that the public holiday became imperative in view of the fact that June 12 this year fell on a Sunday.
The June 12, 1993 presidential election was believed to have been won by late Moshood Kashimawo Abiola. The election was, however, annulled by the then military head of state, General Ibrahim Babangida.
