A statement from Nigeria's Minister of Interior, Major General Godwin Abbe (retired), declared that Monday and Tuesday, December 8 and 9, 2008, would be public holidays on the occasion of the 2008 Eid el-Kabir Muslim festival.

Note that this is one day later than the previously announced date, which traditionally follows the date set by Libya.
