A human rights activist and lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN) will today be the guest speaker at a lecture organised to commemorate the June 12 anniversary in Ondo State.
The lecture entitled â€œ June 12 : A Celebration of Courage and Resilienceâ€ would hold at the Ondo State Event Centre, The Dome. This is also as the Ondo State Governor, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu had directed that today be declared as a work free day in honour of the winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, the late Chief MKO Abiola.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Segun Ajiboye,Â Akeredolu said the late Abiolaâ€™s supreme sacrifice culminated in the hurried departure of the military from the political scene in
1999. Ajiboye said eminent Nigerians, including notable activists are lined up to grace the event that would be chaired by Wale Oshun.
The government had directed all public servants of Grade Level 10 and above to attend the lecture.
