The Ministry of Interior of the Federal Government of Nigeria, Retired Lt.-Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau, has announced that the Nigerian Government had declared 2 year-end 2015 non-working public holidays in Nigeria for the end of the year 2015, in addition to those year-end 2015 non-working public holidays in Nigeria announced late last week.

Such announcements of year-end non-working public holidays in Nigeria are relatively common (19-Dec-2014, 20-Dec-2013, 17-Dec-2012, 21-Dec-2011, 17-Dec-2010, and 22-Dec-2009), and already late last week (17-Dec-2015), the Ministry of Interior of the Federal Government of Nigeria, Abdulrahman Dambazau, had announced that the Nigerian Government had declared 3, year-end, non-working public holidays in Nigeria for the end of the year 2015 and the beginning of the calendar year 2016, namely Friday and Saturday, December 25 and 26, 2015, had been declared as non-working public holidays throughout Nigeria "to mark Christmas and Boxing Day Celebrations" while Friday, January 1, 2016, was declared a non-working public holiday throughout Nigeria "to mark the New Year". However, that announcement was silent on the possible declaration of a second non-working public holiday in Nigeria to mark the second occurrence of the Prophet's Birthday Nigerian public holiday in 2015 (30-Dec-2014), which had been expected on December 23 or 24, 2015, as well as that of a day in lieu non-working public holiday in Nigeria to compensate the annual December 26 public holiday falling on a Saturday in 2015, as was done on some previous occasions (22-Dec-2009).

Today's announcement adds a second non-working public holiday in Nigeria to mark the second occurrence of the Prophet's Birthday Nigerian public holiday in 2015 (30-Dec-2014), on December 24, 2015, as well as a non-working public holiday in Nigeria on Monday, December 28, 2015, to compensate the annual December 26 public holiday falling on a Saturday in 2015.
