Nigerian 2016 Eid El-Kabir Public Holidays Announced
 
(Posted on Wednesday, September 7, 2016)

Source: Official Gazette of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (Abuja)

The acting Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of the Interior of the Federal Government of Nigeria, Muhammadu Maccido, has announced that the Nigerian Government had decided to declare Monday and Tuesday, September 12 and 13, 2016, as the date of the annual non-working public holidays of Nigeria on account of the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir (aka. Eid al-Adha or Feast of sacrifice).

As we had mentioned in recent years (13-Sep-2015, 27-Sep-2014, 12-Oct-2013, 11-Oct-2013 and 22-Oct-2012), after a one-year relapse (13-Aug-2012), the Nigerian Government seemed to have abandoned its previous practice of following the Libyan Muslim calendar (14-Sep-2007), and last year's lockstep reaction to the Saudi announcement (13-Sep-2015) is proof of that.
