Nigerian government orders closure of all public schools and offices in Abuja from Wednesday to Friday next week.
| May 02, 2014
The Federal government has ordered the closure of all public schools and offices in Abuja from Wednesday to Friday next week while the World Economic Forum on Africa holds in the city. The government said the closure will reduce traffic within the city which will enable those attending the World Economic Forum carry move about without much hindrance but most people see it as a security precaution following the recent bomb blasts in the city. In a statement, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Pius Anyim, said âThis is to inform the general public that the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, GCFR, has approved, as part of arrangements for the successful hosting of the World Economic Forum Africa, that all Government Offices and Schools in the Federal Capital Territory, except those on essential services, are to be closed from Wednesday, 7th to Friday, 9th May, 2014. Private organizations with large number of staff may also wish to close down.â

We have public holidays for religious festivities (Christmas, Easter, Id El Fitri, Id El Kabri, etc). We have public holidays for politics (elections, independence day, swearing in ceremony).

We have public holidays for wage disputes (labour strikes). We work half day on Fridays to go for prayers. We have public holidays for communical clashes (including Boko Haram, OPC, Egbesu, etc).

For mere holding of Economic Forum, we declare 3 day public holiday. Humm. Are we serious? If a debtor nation spends half of the year on holidays, how does he come out of the debt threshold? Which economic theory supports this type of administration and management? Humm. God save Nigeria
