Remember that in 2018, President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration moved the commemoration of Democracy Day from May 29 to June 12 to honor MKO Abiola, whose presidential election was invalidated by then-military Head of State Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida.

Kingibe was not formally recognized as a former Vice President of Nigeria till now.

This year’s Democracy Day will be President Buhari’s final one as the country’s leader.

A new government would have taken over in 2023 during the next celebration of Democracy Day at Eagle Square.
