Breaking: FG extends Eid-el-Fitr public holidays

The Federal Government has extended the public holiday for the Eid-El-Fitr celebration.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Aishetu Gogo Ndayako, revealed this in a statement on Tuesday morning.

The need to extend the holidays stemmed from the non-signing the crescent in Nigeria as confirmed by the head of the Muslim community in Nigeria and Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar.

Ndayako said: “The Federal Government has approved Thursday 11th April 2024 as an additional public holiday to celebrate this year’s Eid-El-Fitr.

“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 GCFR firm commitment to providing a safe and prosperous Nigeria for all to thrive.”
