The Federal Government of Nigeria has declared Monday and Tuesday, November 7-8, 2011, as the dates of the non-working public holidays for the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir (Feast of Sacrifice).
The aforementioned announcement was made by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Alhaji Sheidu Ozigis, on behalf of the Minister, Abba Moro.
In the past, Nigeria used to follow the LCRSS Libyan Muslim calendar (14-Sep-2007), then it tried to adjust Muslim public holidays to adjoin weekends (18-Sep-2009 and 25-Sep-2008). With the fall of the previous Libyan regime, it is hard to tell if Nigeria will keep on referring to the LCRSS, or if the LCRSS will still function, for that matter.
