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.

While congratulating all Muslims for the successful completion of Ramadan, Aregbesola called on them to “imbibe and practise 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-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.
