No African country falls in the top 10. Morocco made the cut tied with several other countries in the 11th spot.

In other words, Nigeria is still “learning” when it comes to public holidays.

I don’t think Nigeria is more developed/advanced than any of the above-listed countries notwithstanding how much they love public holidays. I hope those who were on about the extra day added to the Eid holiday by the Nigerian government read and learn.
