Eid-il-Fitr: FG declares Friday, and Monday Public Holidays

The Federal Government has declared Friday, April 21, and Monday 24, 2023, as public holidays to mark this year’s EIdil-Fitr celebration.

A statement signed by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Shuiab Belgore, noted that the Minister, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration on behalf of the government yesterday.

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

” He added that government’s commitment to the provision of security for the life and property of every citizen and foreigner in the country remained firm.

“He urges Nigerians to be part of the nation’s security architecture by being vigilant and reporting suspicious individuals and activities to law enforcement agencies nearest to them.

”He noted that security is everybody’s responsibility; he admonishes Nigerians also to report suspicious activities and persons to the N-Alert application,” the statement added.
