Election: No public holiday on Friday, says LASG


The Lagos State Government on Wednesday says it has not set aside Friday as a public holiday to enable Lagosians to prepare for the governorship and House of Assembly elections.



The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Kehinde Bamigbetan, in a statement, said Lagosians should disregard the reports on social media platforms suggesting that the State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, had declared Friday as a public holiday, adding that civil servants were expected to be at their various duty posts.



He said, “A report currently circulating on social media platforms had suggested that the State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode had declared Friday as a public holiday to enable Lagosians to prepare for the March 9 governorship and House of Assembly elections.



“We want to use this medium to say that the information was untrue and all civil servants are expected to be at their various duty posts on Friday.”



He, however, added that all public and private schools in the state are expected to proceed on the second mid-term break on Thursday, 7 and Friday 8 March 2019 and resume academic activities on Monday, March 11, 2019.
