The Federal Government of Nigeria declared today May 29, 2013 a public holiday to celebrate the country’s change of governance from military rule to civilian rule. Today marks the 14th year of the return to civil rule in Nigeria.
May 29 was declared Democracy Day by The Nigerian Federal Government in 2000 to commemorate the return of civil rule after many years of military governance of the country. General Abdulsalami Abubakar, handed over power to President Olusegun Obasanjo on May 29, 1999.
Can we as Nigerians, say exactly that the return to civil rule in Nigeria in 1999 has really met our expectations so far?
