In commemoration of the American Labour Day, the United State Embassy says its offices in Lagos and Abuja would be closed for operation on Monday September 2, 2019. The announcement is supposed to help anyone preparing to visit the embassy or its consulate to reschedule.
In a statement released via its Twitter Handle this Friday, August 30, 2019, the Mission discloses that consular activities would be unavailable on the said date.
It therefore urges Nigerians and US visa applicants to take note of the date, disclosing that activities at the embassies would be reopened on Tuesday September 3rd.

CobraReview recalls that Labour Day in the US is a federal holiday celebrated every first Monday of September in honour of the American Labour Movement.
From history the Labour Movement seeks to protect the rights of workers in the US. That movement led to the formation of the Federation of Organised Trade and Labour Unions in 1881.
