The aforementioned declaration of Friday, December 25, 2020, Monday, December 28, 2020, and Friday, January 1, 2021, as Nigerian public holidays, is as expected and in line with past announcements (2019-12-19, 2018-12-19, 2017-12-20, 2016-12-23, 2015-12-30, 2015-12-22, 2015-12-17, 2014-12-19, 2013-12-20, 2012-12-17 and 2011-12-21), the main difference with past years being that, after 4 years of making regular public holidays announcements for Nigeria, Abdulrahman Dambazau was replaced as Minister of Interior of the Federal Government of Nigeria, by Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, last year.
