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’,” the post read.

This confirms report earlier this week.

Our correspondent had reached out to a source in the presidency, to make clarifications and it was gathered that the date will be a public holiday in future years, not 2018.
