The government of Benin has released a communiqué, signed by Benin's Minister of Labour and of the Public Sector, Adidjatou Mathys, announcing that the government of Bénin had declared Friday and Saturday, July 31 and August 1st, 2020, as non-working public holidays throughout Bénin on account of the upcoming "fête de la Tabaski" (Feast of Sacrifice) annual non-working public holiday of Bénin as well as for the August 1st National Day public holiday of Bénin.
The aforementioned declaration of Friday and Saturday, July 31 and August 1st, 2020, as non-working public holidays throughout Bénin, as on previous occasions (2019-08-09), is in line with the previously-announced list of annual non-working public holidays in the Benin for the calendar year 2020, as announced by the government of Benin, earlier this year (2020-01-06), as well as with the "loi n°90-019 du 27 juillet 1990 fixant les fêtes légales en République du Bénin" and seems, once more, to follow the Saudi Umm al-Qura Islamic calendar.
