Ebun Francis|

The Senate on Thursday passed a bill seeking to make June 12 Democracy Day.

The bill was passed after it was put to a voice vote by Ike Ekweremadu, deputy senate president.

The upper legislative chamber passed the bill which seek to amend the holiday act after Ahmad Lawan, senate leader, presented a report to Senators.

The house of representatives passed the bill in December 2018.

President Muhammadu Buhari last year declared that the Democracy Day will hold on June 12 of every year.
