There is a going to be a positive change in our country, Nigeria from Sunday, May 24th – Sunday, May 31st 2020.
Lots of activities are already lined up that will make this Nation look interesting next week.
Because in the past weeks, there have been so much chaos, unrest and upheaval, coupled with the rising cases of Coronavirus and the economy that has failed to reopen.
However, with all these programmes, things will hopefully bounce back to normal.
The policies of the Federal Government has affected the way of life of Nigerians including when to go to work and when not to, when to observe a holidays and even the numbers of days to be used for certain celebrations.
Like every other countries of the world, Nigerian government has also set aside some special days for some special celebrations. These celebrations include Democracy Day, Worker’s Day, Children’s Day, Independence Day etc.
Some of these holidays come with so much Joy to Nigerians as many will rest from going to office to partake in the celebration, but now a holiday means nothing to us because we are already on holiday, nevertheless let’s make the most of it.
Below is a rundown of how next week will look like:
*Sunday, May 24th 2020
As Muslims around the world bid farewell to the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, they also prepare for the festival of Eid al-Fitr.
Depending on the sighting of the moon, Eid celebrations will begin either in the evening of Saturday, May 23, or Sunday, May 24.

It is a tradition that has been held annually, beginning in year 2000. June 12 was formerly known as Abiola Day, celebrated in Lagos, Nigeria and some south western states of Nigeria.
