Nigeria's Minister of Interior, Emmanuel Ihenacho, has announced that the federal government of Nigeria had declared Monday, May 3, 2010, as a non-working public holiday to compensate the fact that this year's May 1st public holiday falls on a Saturday.
As per articles 5a to 5d of the current laws regulating public holidays in Nigeria, the Public Holidays Act of 1979 (chapter 378), and the Public Holidays Act of 2004 (Cap.P40, Vol.14 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004), no day in lieu is to be given to compensate any public holiday that falls on a Saturday or Sunday. However, in the past, some rare exceptions were made to the law, most recently in 2007 (31-Mar-2007) and 2006 (28-Sep-2006).
In addition, the National President of the Association of the Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN), Olakunle Olaitan, has announced a warning strike and directed all the Federal civil servants to go on holiday and stay away from their offices throughout next week (May 3 to May 7, 2010).
