No public holiday on Friday in Lagos -Ambode

The Lagos State Government on Wednesday denied reports making the round that it had declared Friday, March 8 as public holiday for workers to plan for the governorship and house of assembly elections.

In a statement signed by the commissioner for information and strategy, Kehinde Bamigbetan, the government said civil servants are expected to be at their various duty posts on Friday, and disregard any information to the contrary.

Mr Bamigbetan reiterated that just as earlier announced by Deputy Governor Idiat Adebule, all public and private schools in the state are expected to proceed on the second mid-term break on Thursday, 7 and Friday 8 March, 2019 and resume academic activities on Monday, March 11, in accordance with the revised school calendar for 2018/2019 academic year.

Last month, the Federal Government had declared Friday, February 22 as a public holiday for Nigerians to participate in the presidential and National Assembly elections of February 23; an action that may have raised the expectations of many of a possible repeat.
