The Nigerian House of Representatives in Abuja has once again adopted a motion calling on the Federal Government to declare March 8 of every year as public holiday "to celebrate the virtues of the Nigerian woman".
A similar resolution was passed, last year (10-Mar-2012), by the Nigerian House of Representatives urging that the Federal Government of Nigeria declare an annual non-working public holiday on March 8 to commemorate Women's Day. This resolution had been 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).
