The Kwara State Government has postponed its scheduled activities in commemoration of the June 12 Democracy Day in the state to Friday, June 14.
The new development was disclosed in a statement issued by Rafiu Ajakaye, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor.
According to the statement, the postponement was necessary to enable the state governor attend the inaugural national commemoration of the day in Abuja.
“This to enable State Governors, including Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on the invitation of the Federal Government, to join Mr President and over 80 foreign leaders and dignitaries at the inaugural national commemoration of the day in the capital Abuja.
“What this means is that the event slated for the Metropolitan Square and State Banquet in Ilorin will now hold on Friday 14th June, instead of Wednesday, June 12.
“Kwara will nonetheless observe the national holiday slated for June 12 as earlier announced by the Federal Government. There will be no new holiday on Friday”, the statement revealed.
It also urged Kwara residents and invitees from outside Kwara (billed to attend the event) to note the slight alteration in the schedule.
