Is There Public Holiday Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 October, 2022?

Public Holiday on Monday 3rd October and Tuesday 4th September, 2022

There will be a public holiday Monday, 3 October, 2022. The Federal Government has declared Monday, 3rd of October, 2022 to mark the 62nd Nigeria Independence celebration. So, there is a public holiday on Monday and this too coincides with the Nnamdi Kanu's Sit-at home order. Public Holiday on Monday 3rd October and Tuesday 4th October, 2022.

For those who live in the East like Enugu State, Ebonyi, Anambra, Abia and Imo, every Monday is sit at home. This order or practice has been standing since the leader of the proscribe IPOB, Onyendu Maazi Nnamdi Kalu was reprimand in the prison. Read also:

So, for the people living in the mentioned states, the question on whether there is a public holiday on Monday, 3rd October, 2022 is not valid for them. Mondays are now the resting days for them.

Is There Public Holiday Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 October, 2022?

There is also a rumor that the public Holiday is extended till Tuesday 4th October, 2022. Is There Public Holiday on Tuesday 4 October, 2022? The answer is yes and no.

I said yes because Maazi Nnamdi Kanu will be going to court on Tuesday. But he will not be making a personal appearance. This is because the court will be holding in Abia State.

The Federal High Court in Umuahia, Abia state, has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday to hear the extraordinary rendition complaint brought by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Aloy Ejimakor, Kanu's special counsel, announced this on Thursday in a statement captioned, "RE: Court to hear Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's extraordinary rendition case on October 4th."

"On 4th October 2022, the Federal High Court, Umuahia will hear Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's extraordinary rendition action, which I filed before the court in March this year," the statement added.

"The Suit is sui generis (of a peculiar class), and its primary goal is to correct the infamous wrongful removal or deportation or extraordinary rendition of Nnamdi Kanu, which is a clear violation of his fundamental rights under Article 12(4) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights, as well as Chapter IV of the Nigerian Constitution.

“In addition to the rendition, I am asking the Court to redress the myriad violations that came with the rendition, such as the torture, the unlawful detention and the denial of the right to fair hearing which is required by law before anybody can be expelled from one country to the other. I am also seeking to halt his prosecution and restore him to the status quo before he was rendition on 19th June, 2021." Aloy Ejimakor further explained.

Meanwhile, it is not yet clear if all the Eastern States will observe the Sit at home since the court appearance is taking place in Umuahia and Maazi Kanu will not be making appearance.

Is There Public Holiday Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 October, 2022?

No. There will not be a public holiday on Tuesday 4 October, 2022. Public Holiday to mark Nigeria 62nd Independence ends on Monday. But those living in the East should make further inquiries before leaving their houses on Tuesday 4 October, 2022 for security proposes.

In my opinion, Tuesday 4th October, 2022 may be used as Sit at home as usual since Nnamdi |Kanu's hearing will take place in Umuahia appeal court.
