    I was already planning the excuse to give to my boss, so as not to be at work on the 24th. I haven’t done my Christmas shopping yet. Buhari has just scored a point in my books!

    “Maulud Nabiy”? I have never heard of this before now in Nigeria. Have we ever had this on the Nigerian official calendar before the Buhari administration?

    There was his Iranian counterpart referring to Nigeria as a muslim country more than once in their telephone conversation, where he was talking to Buhari and his only interest and agenda (as one president to another) was the preservation of the lives of muslims in Nigeria; Buhari never once corrected him, each time he referred to Nigeria as one of the muslim countries of the world, that Nigeria is not a muslim country. Now, “Maulud Nabiy”?
    Is this different from eid-el malud?

      It has always been given as a public holiday, birthday of the prophet. Calm down, don’t give yourself high BP over nothing. Nigeria is for Christians, Muslims and all other religions

    Wait! What’s with the short notice?
    Are bank holidays not in the calender.
    How can they just announce a bank holiday a couple days before the actual day?
    Does this not mess people’s plans?
    Does this no mess up any work related plans?
    I couldn’t deal! How can a government be so unorganised?
    Anyhows….this doesn’t concern me. *walks away”
