Eid el-Fitr: FG approves Thursday as additional public holiday

The Federal Government on Tuesday approved Thursday as an additional public holiday to celebrate this year’s Eid -El-Fitr.

This was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday by Dr Aishetu Gogo Ndayako, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior.

“The Honourable Minister of Interior, Dr Olubunmi Tunji Ojo, while congratulating the muslim Ummah for a successful completion of a month of spiritual rejuvenation, reiterates President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s (GCFR) firm commitment to providing a safe and prosperous Nigeria for all to thrive”, the statement added.

The government had earlier announced Tuesday and Wednesday for the celebration of the Eid el-Fitr but the crescent moon could not be spotted on Monday, prompting the extension of the holidays.

Shadanpamaeporters report that that Saudi Arabia and the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar had declared Wednesday, April 10, as Eid el-Fitr, as the crescent moon was not sighted.
