The long-awaited 2019 Day of Democracy speech was delivered by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Latestalert recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari did not give a speech on May 29 after swearing his second term.
The president talked about electricity, security, infrastructure, work and many other problems affecting Nigerians.
In his speech, the president also honored the late winner of the 12 June 1993 presidential election, Chief MKO Abiola, naming the National Stadium of Abuja as his name.
“This administration will consolidate on the successes of the last four years. In the last four years, we have made tremendous progress in addressing challenges in the country.”
Meanwhile, here are the reactions of Nigerians as follows:
The much awaited June 12 Democracy day speech that we had to give up May 29th speech for, had better be nothing short of excellent.
We wait #DemocracyDay

The analysis of the June 12, 2019 Inaugural Democracy Day Presidential Speech should start coming in please. The only thing I’ve heard so far is the “we are going to better the lives of our people.” Me I want a better life. How did he say he would achieve that? #democracyday

As for me what IBB did that time was right. How can you pronounce urself as president or winner before the commission that has the power and moreover the west has their interest in abiole

But I thought @OfficialPDPNig has never done anything in the 16 years of her reigns, how come the Stadium built by a PDP government is now worthy of being christened after the Hero of Democracy by @APCUKingdom @APCNigeria . Just thinking out loud….

They say JUNE 12 is our present DEMOCRACY day. To me it's just a naming ceremony. True DEMOCRACY should be True FEDERALISM. I expect more True FREEDOM of the PRESS and SPEECH because that is the True identity of a genuine DEMOCRACY
