Nigerian Eid Public Holidays July 17 and 20

The Nigerian Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Interior, Abubakar Magaji, in a statement by the Ministry of Interior, has announced that the Federal Government of Nigeria had declared Friday and Monday, July 17 and 20, 2015, as the non-working public holidays throughout Nigeria for the upcoming Eid-el-Fitri (End of Ramadan).

As happened in previous years (23-Jul-2014, 05-Aug-2013, 13-Aug-2012, 18-Sep-2009 and 25-Sep-2008), though not systematically (24-Aug-2011 and 03-Sep-2010), the Nigerian Government moved the End of Ramadan public holidays to adjoin a nearby weekend, and seems to have definitely abandoned its past practice of following the Libyan Muslim calendar (14-Sep-2007).
