Anambra State Government has declared Monday, November 18, 2019 a work-free day.
This is in Commemoration of the posthumous birthday of the first President of Nigeria, Dr Benjamin Nnamdi Azikiwe.
A release by the Head of Service, Barr Harry Uduh, stated that the day will be work free in the state, and that workers are expected to stay at home to observe the holiday.
He said, “This is to inform the public that Anambra state government has declared Monday, 18th November, 2019 as work free day for everyone in Anambra state.
“This is in commemoration of the birthday of Late Hon. Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe (Owelle of Onitsha), former President of Nigeria.”
