Nigeria Decides 2019: Federal Government Declares Friday As Public Holiday

The federal government of Nigeria has declared that Friday 22nd will be a public holiday as the country prepares for the rescheduled Saturday 23rd presidential and national assembly elections.
A statement released by the ministry of interior on Wednesday stated that banks and other essential services providers would be exempted from this public holiday.
The work free day is understood to have been provided to citizens to enable them to go back to their voting units to exercise their constitutional right.
The federal government also ordered the early payment of civil servants so that they would have enough funds for transportation and food during the voting period.
Africa's most populated country was supposed to hold its elections on Friday 16, but the Independent National Electoral Commission postponed it a few hours to the elections citing logistics challenges.
Nigerians will now vote on February 23 for the presidential and national assembly candidates, and March 9 for the the governorship/state assembly candidates.
