Nigeria Declares Year-End Public Holidays

Nigeria's Minister of the Interior, Dr. Shettima Mustapha, acting on behalf of President Umaru Yar'Adua, has declared Thursday and Friday, December 24 and 25, 2009, as well as Friday, January 1, 2010 as nationwide public holidays.

December 25 and January 1st are annual public holidays in Nigeria, but the declaration of December 24, 2009, as an additional one-off public holiday is probably due to the fact that the annual public holiday of December 26, falls on a Saturday in 2009 (though weekend public holidays in Nigeria are not usually afforded a day in lieu on the following Monday).
