The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, who made this known on Thursday morning during a briefing at a radio house in Abuja, said the President’s speech would be part of activities to mark the 2022 Democracy Day celebrations.

Channels TV reports that Mr. President’s national broadcast will be centred on Democracy Day which will be fully celebrated on June 12th.
