The House of Representatives of Nigeria has passed a resolution urging that the Federal Government of Nigeria should also declare an annual non-working public holiday on March 8 to commemorate Women's Day.

The aforementioned resolution followed a motion sponsored by the Chairman, House Committee on Aviation, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha.

Currently, public holidays in Nigeria are regulated by articles 5a to 5d of the Public Holidays Act of 1979 (chapter 378), and by the Public Holidays Act of 2004 (Cap.P40, Vol.14 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004).

A few years ago (07-Mar-2007), Zambia had declared March 8 an annual non-working public holiday in Zambia to commemorate International Women's Day.
