The Federal Government has declared Friday 21st and Monday 24th April, 2023, as Public Holiday to mark this year’s EIdil-Fitr Celebration.
Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government in statement signed by the Permanent Secretary, Dr Shuaib Belgore.
He congratulated all Muslims for the successful completion of the holy month of Ramadan.
Aregbesola also called on all Muslims to imbibe and practice 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-restrain, 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”, the minister advises all Muslims.
