The Federal Government has declared Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13, May, 2021 as Public Holidays to mark this year’s Eidul-Fitr celebration.
This is contained in a statement on Monday May 10, by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr. Shuaib Belgore.
The statement quoted the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola while making the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government today in Abuja, as congratulating the Muslim faithful on the occasion.
Aregbesola, who believes that development cannot thrive in a rancorous atmosphere, urged all “Nigerians to be law-abiding and embrace the spirit of love, self-discipline, kindness, and tolerance, as taught by the Holy Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him)”.
Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, and the holiday begins according to the sighting of the new moon.
