Nigerian 2015 Prophet's Birthday Public Holiday

Nigeria's Federal Minister of Interior, Abba Moro, has announced that Friday, January 2, 2015, had been declared an official non-working public holiday throughout Nigeria to commemorate the annual Muslim celebration of Eid-El-Maulud (Prophet Muhammad's Birthday).

As was the case for the past 2 years (09-Jan-2014 and 19-Jan-2013), but contrary to what happened the year before (02-Feb-2012), an additional one-off day in lieu public holiday did not need to be declared as the upcoming public holiday for the Id-el-Maoulud (Prophet's Birthday) does not fall on a weekend in 2015 (although one could argue that the declaration of Friday, January 2, 2015, had been declared an official non-working public holiday throughout Nigeria to commemorate the annual Muslim celebration of Eid-El-Maulud, instead of January 3 or 4, is in itself a day in lieu public holiday.

Recall that, earlier this month (19-Dec-2014), Thursday, January 1, 2015, was declared a non-working public holiday throughout Nigeria "to mark the New Year".
