Niger's Ministère de la Fonction Publique et du Travail has announced that the upcoming New Year public holiday would be observed on its set date of Saturday, January 1, 2011.

In the communique, the Ministre specifically refers to the "loi n° 2006-08 du 02 mai 2006" (2006-05-09) according to which fixed-date public holidays that fall on a Sunday no longer give rise to a day in lieu public holiday on the following Monday, ensuring that any rumours of an additional Monday public holiday are nipped in the bud.
