Isese Festival: Osun Declares Monday Public Holiday by Aminat508(f): 3:33pm On Aug 16, 2018
@AMILOADED


The State Government of Osun has declared Monday, August 20, 2018 as public holiday to commemorate the annual Isese festival.


Isese Day is a public holiday set aside for traditional believers in the state by the Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s administration.



This was contained in a statement signed and issued by Dr Adebisi Obawale, the state commissioner for Home Affairs made available to Amiloaded correspondent in Osogbo on Thursday.


According to the statement, the holiday is in recognition of the annual Isese festival’s grand finale, which allows the adherents of traditional religion to come together for the annual celebration.


Also known as Traditional Worshipers Day, Isese Day is the celebration of the peak of festivities among adherents of traditional religion.


The government enjoined all the traditional believers to celebrate the Isese day in peace and avoid any act capable of breaching the peace of the state.

I'm patiently waiting for the day the federal government is gonna give them a general holiday the whole country is gonna observe and not just osun state. they do it for the borrowed religions "Islam and Christianity" therefore very own traditional religion shouldn't be left out.
