How do people react to public holidays in Nigeria, especially civil servants?

I think everyone loves public holidays. But, Nigerians tend to extend the free days that have been allocated to them. For example, if the Nigerian government declares 2 days off for a religious or national celebration, public workers tend to take the entire week off and in turn, it affects the chain of work.

Does this also happen at your place of work?

What measure can be put in place to ensure that workers adhere to the number of free days allocated to them, or do you think that this practice cannot be stopped?
