Nigeria-Three Weeks,Three Public Holidays

It is raining season here in Nigeria.We are enjoying the cool breeze and the rain except for the bad roads and water flow which is making movement a bit difficult. Some people have to relocate from their houses because raining season is usually a difficult period for them.Their homes are usually turned into 'emergency' swimming pool.
In Lagos,areas mostly affected are usually part of ikorodu,Ijora Badia and so on. These people need more government attention.
Between now and June 12,Nigerians would observe three public holidays. First would be on May 27 known as children's day.Yes,it fell on Sunday, a work free day but the public holiday will be observed by children on Monday May 28.The following day will be a general public holiday-May 29 will be declared as work free day because the government named it democracy day.Remember 29 May 1999 was the day democracy returned to Nigeria after many years of civil rule. However,Lagos State government will declare June 12 as another public holiday.It is in honour of Bashorun MKO Abiola,the billionaire believed to have won the June 12 presidential election that was annuled by Babangida.Lagos State government believe that is the 'authentic' democracy day.
Enjoy and rock the holidays but pray NEPA supply electricity so that you can watch your favorite movies!
