Federal Government, in preparation for this Saturday February 23rd Presidential and National Assembly elections, has declared Friday, February 22nd as a public holiday.
A statement released by the Ministry of Interior, says bankers and those offering essential services across the nation are excluded in observing the public holiday. ☹
“The Federal Government declares Friday, February 22, 2019 as work-free day,” the statement read. “Those providing essential duties and bankers are excluded. The work-free day is to enable citizens return to their poling units for the reschedule Presidential & National Assembly elections.

Sorry bankers, but money is necessary.
