FG declares July 30 and July 31 as public holidays for Eid-el-Kabir celebrations

The Federal Government has declared Thursday, 30 July and Friday, 31 July as public holidays to celebrate Eid-el-Kabir. 

Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, the minister of interior, made the declaration on behalf of the government. While doing so, he congratulated Muslims and Nigerians both within and outside the country on the occasion of the celebration.

The minister called on Muslims to continue to imbibe the spirit of love, peace, kindness and sacrifice, as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).

He also encouraged Muslims to use this period to pray for peace, unity, prosperity and the stability for Nigeria especially as the world is witnessing global health challenges caused by Covid-19 pandemic.

Aregbosola went further by reassuring Nigerians that President Buhari’s administration is fully committed to battling the scourge of Coronavirus with the cooperation of all Nigerians.

The minister emphasized that the government would continue to foster peaceful coexistence, national cohesion, and stability as it journeys towards actualizing the full potentials of the country.

Aregbesla further advised Nigerians to take responsibility against the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to stay safe by observing physical and social distancing, personal and respiratory hygiene, as well as other regulations issued by relevant authorities.
