Eid-Al-Fitr: FG declares Monday and Tuesday public holiday

PublishedBy: in NewsMay 21, 2020

Nigeria’s Federal Government has declared Monday and Tuesday as public holidays to mark the celebration of Eid-Al-Fitr.

Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior,  made the announcement on behalf of the Federal Government in Abuja.

The Minister congratulated all Muslim faithful for the successful completion of the Ramadan fast.

In a statement by Mohammed Manga, the Director of Press in the Ministry, quoted Aregbesola as calling on Muslim faithful to replicate the life of kindness, love, tolerance, peace and good neighbourliness as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).

However, Aregbesola expressed concern over the spate of ethnic conflicts that has resurfaced in some parts of Northern Nigeria in recent times.

Also he advised Nigerians to see themselves as a single entity and learn to tolerate one another despite  differences in their ethnic and religion.

The Minister further assured Nigerians that the  President Muhammadu Buhari administration was fully committed to battling the coronavirus pandemic.

While commending security agencies for the successes so far recorded in the fight against the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East, Aregbesola urged Nigerians to take responsibility against the spread of COVID-19.

The Minister reminded Muslims to adhere to the Coronavirus guidelines and regulations.
