As part of activities to commemorate the 2018 Democracy Day celebrations, President Muhammadu Buhari will on Tuesday, May 29, make a national broadcast at 7am local time.

Nigeria since 1999 has been observing 29 May as Democracy Day.

According to the president's aide, Femi Adesina, television and radio stations are enjoined to hook up to the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and Radio Nigeria for the broadcast.

It is expected that the President’s speech will touch on plans to sustain democracy in Nigeria and deliver more democratic dividends to citizens.

May 29, 1999, was the day the military handed over the reins of power to democratically elected representatives at all levels of governance.

The military, in its second coming, had governed Nigeria, between January 1984 and May 1999, allowing two years of civilian rule at the state level, between 1991 and 1993. 

Tuesday’s celebration also marks the third anniversary of the Buhari administration.

Recall that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had on Sunday called on the President not to address Nigerians tomorrow, accusing him of not defending democracy during his tenure so far.
