If you thought that Tuesday, 12th of June 2018 is a federal public holiday, sorry, it isn’t.
The Federal Government has clarified that the newly announced Democracy Day will take effect in “subsequent years” and not from this year.
According to a tweet from Aso Rock’s official Twitter account:
NOTICE: There have been questions regarding whether or not there will be a FEDERAL public holiday on June 12, 2018. The answer is NO. Presidential Order says June 12 “in FUTURE YEARS will replace May 29th as a National Public Holiday in celebration of Nigeria Democracy Day”.
