Ambode, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Habib Aruna, said the development was a historic and symbolic moment in the nation’s political trajectory.
The statement read, “This is a welcome development. It is a historic moment in our nation, and I join other Nigerians to commend President Buhari on this announcement.
“By this move, he has done what previous administrations failed to do.
“This not only shows that the president is a man of history and character but also eloquently confirms that the heroes of democracy did not die in vain after all.”
The Federal Government had on Wednesday declared that June 12 will henceforth be celebrated as Democracy Day.
