Eid-ul-Fitr: The Federal Government declares the 21st and 24th of April to be public holidays.

According to a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Shuiab Belgore, the announcement was made on behalf of the Federal Government by Minister Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.

While congratulating all Muslims for completing Ramadan successfully, Aregbesola urged people to “imbibe and practise the virtues of kindness, love, tolerance, peace, self-denial, sacrifice, and good neighbourliness, as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).”

“The self-control, self-denial, sacrifice, and deep spiritual consciousness that accompanied the fasting period should not be abandoned, but should be maintained and improved upon in order to be a better person and true worshipper,” the pastor urged.
