Thursday 30 and Friday 31 July, 2020 have been declared as Public Holidays to mark this year’s Eid-el-Kabir Celebration.
The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration moments ago on behalf of the Federal Government.
He called on the Muslims to continue to imbibe the spirit of love, peace, kindness and sacrifice, as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad and to also use the period to pray for peace, unity, prosperity and the stability of the country especially as the world is witnessing global health challenges caused by Covid-19 pandemic.
Aregbosola assured that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is fully committed to battling the scourge with the cooperation of all Nigerians.
The minister emphasised that the government would continue to foster peaceful coexistence, national cohesion and stability in its march towards actualizing the full potentials of the country.
