The State Governments of the Nigerian State of Osun has declared Tuesday, August 20, 2013, as a non-working public holiday in the Nigerian State of Osun, to celebrate Isese Day (the celebration of world traditional religions).

The aforementioned decision to Tuesday, August 20, 2013, as a non-working public holiday in the Nigerian State of Osun, was made by Governor Rauf Aregbesola, following a call, last week, by the president of the Osun State chapter of the Traditional Religion Worshippers Association, Chief Awopetu Idowu, who said that for Governor Rauf Aregbesola to demonstrate his commitment to the promotion of peaceful co-existence and equal right for all religions in the state, he should declare Tuesday and Wednesday, August 20 and 21, 2013, as public holidays in the state of Osun.
