Jamar stated, “But, when we go into everyday life of Black people, people who are the originators of this sh*t, we don’t f*cking listen to Eminem. We don’t listen to Eminem. We don’t go to the gym and turn on Eminem. We don’t listen to him on the way to the club. We don’t play him in the club…now, corny places I can’t speak for that.” 50 Cent caught wind of the interview and sent shots at Lord Jamar on Instagram, writing, “Lord Jerome better sit his ass down, I thought you died already N*gga. Get the fuck outta here you ain’t Grand Puba anyway. I’m gonna need a bum ass n*gga in one of my shows. I’ll be reaching out shortly.”

Senate Passes Bill Recognising June 12 As Democracy Day

The Senate on Thursday passed the Public Holiday Act Amendment Bill to recognise June 12 as the new Democracy Day.

The bill was passed almost one year after President Muhammadu Buhari announced that the date would replace May 29 for Nigerians to commemorate the return to the civilian government.

While some members of the National Assembly had criticised the President that Democracy Day cannot be changed by just a declaration, others commended his decision.

President Buhari’s declaration was later approved in the Senate by an act of parliament after the lawmakers considered the bill seeking to amend the Public Holiday Act on Thursday.

The bill, which is in concurrence with that of the House of Representatives, will now be forwarded to the President for assent.

President Buhari had on June 6, 2018 announced June 12 as the new date which Democracy Day would be celebrated in the country, to honour the presumed winner of the 1993 presidential election, Moshood Abiola, who was fondly known as MKO.

He explained that the date was more symbolic of democracy in the Nigerian context than May 29, or even October 1.

The President had also conferred a posthumous GCFR title on Abiola, while his running mate in the election, Ambassador Baba Gana Kingibe, got a GCON national honour.

Six months later, the House of Representatives adopted June 12 as the new Democracy Day.
