To commemorate the 2021 Eid-el-Fitr festival, the Federal Government has designated Wednesday and Thursday as public holidays.
Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior, announced this on Monday.
According to a statement issued by Dr. Shuaib Belgore, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Interior, Aregbesola congratulated the Muslim faithful on the occasion.
He also called “all Nigerians, at home and abroad to use the period of this year’s Eidul-Fitr celebration to pray for peace, stability and economic transformation in the land”.
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)”.
