President Muhammadu Buhari has signed into the law the Public Holiday (Amendment) Bill, according to his National Assembly Liaison Officer, Senator Ita Enang.

The new law accommodates June 12 as a public holiday in Nigeria, replacing May 29.

May 29 will only be marked as a handover/inauguration of new governments in the country.

The signing came just days to June 12, giving legal backing to the day.

The National Assembly recently passed the amendment bill.
