Election: FG Declares Friday Public Holiday, Excludes Bankers by jojomario(m): 9:58pm On Feb 20
Now that the federal government has declared Friday 22nd as public holiday for preparation for those travelling for the election. I believe all is set for INEC come 23rd February for the presidential election.


The federal government of Nigeria has declared Friday, February 22, 2019, as a public holiday, in preparation for the February 23 presidential and parliamentary elections.

The ministry of interior via a statement on Wednesday, however, excluded bankers and those offering essential services across the nation.

“Federal Government declares Friday 22, February 2019 as work-free day. 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.

“Security agencies have been directed to ensure safety of lives & property before, during & after the general election.”

GOOD IDEA: The Federal Government has declared Friday as Workfree Day to enable Nigerians prepare for the rescheduled Presidential and National Assembly Elections on Saturday.

These old men are singlehandedly sabotaging the economy for their selfish means.
I wish there was an agency to collate the financial loss of last week's half work day on businesses nationwide.
This Friday again, a forced public holiday.
I can't even leave my house without people telling me 'it's election period o, come home early'.
I am not a child.
I am almost forty years of age.
Nigerians deserve the leaders they pick.
We don't know nor care regarding humane treatment from elected officials.

APC the satanic party will surely get it hot from Nigerians, let zombies keep quoting each other back and forth till ejaculation, it won't change the mind of the masses. Buhari is a goner.

But why all this desperation?

They paid salary today and now they are declaring Friday as public holiday?

I heard that they also ask Npower volunteers to vote for Buhari so as to guarantee their quest for permanency.
