The 29th day of May, every year is celebration of Nigeria’s Democracy which became a reality on the 29th of May, 1999.

For eighteen years, Nigeria has celebrated this day with so much fanfare with the commander-in-chief and President of the federal republic at the center of the celebration.

This year’s event is however different as the president, Mohammadu Buhari is currently away in UK on a medical vacation.

FortNews went to town to find out what Nigerians feel  about celebrating a national day in the absence of the president.

“It is a bad one for the country. Celebrating a national day without the president? It is a bad one”, an ATM user said.

A tricyclist who also spoke to FortNews correspondent, said “Nigerians are less concerned about whether the president is in or out of the​ country as neither has any positive effect on Nigerians”.
