While Christians and Muslims are noted for having official public holidays in Nigeria’s calendar, the Osun State government has decided to recognize traditional worshippers with a free day to celebrate their event. It cleared Monday, August 20, a public holiday to commerate the annual Isese festival.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Osun State’s Commissioner for Home Affairs, Adebisi Obawale.
According to the statement, the State Government has declared August 20 as public holiday to commemorate the annual Isese festival, a day set aside for traditional believers in the state.

In the statement obtained by PREMIUM Times on Thursday, the holiday is in recognition of the annual Isese festival’s grand finale, which allows the adherents of traditional religion to come together for the annual celebration.

It read: “Isese Day is the celebration of the peak of festivities among adherents of traditional religion.

“The government enjoined all the traditional believers to celebrate the Isese day in peace and avoid any act capable of breaching the peace of the state.”
