The minister who disclosed this when he addressed State House correspondents said the decision to have a low-key inauguration for the president was taken at the meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday, May 8.
According to him, some events slated for the inauguration will now be held during the first observance of June 12 as the National Democracy Day for Nigeria.
