2022: No official public holidays date yet – FG
The ministry of Interior has refuted a trending news in the media purportedly credited to the ministry on announcement of public holidays for the Yuletide.
The spokesman for the ministry, Afonja Ajibola, on Saturday in Abuja said the ministry had not issued any statement on public holiday for the yuletide.
The spokesman said that the trending media report was false, as the Federal Government had yet to formally declare a public holiday.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that some media outfits on Friday, carried reports that the Federal Government had declared December 26, 27 and January 2, 2023, as public holidays.
The ministry advised members of the public to disregard the trending news and await a formal public announcement on the issue in the next few days.
