Eid-el-Fitr: FG Declares Tuesday, Wednesday As Public Holidays

Tuesday and Wednesday, April 9 and 10, 2024, have been declared as public holidays by the presidency to mark this year's Eid-el-Fitr celebration.

The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, announced the declaration of holidays in a statement on Sunday by the ministry’s permanent secretary, Aishetu Ndayako.

The minister congratulated all Muslims for the successful completion of the fasting in the holy month of Ramadan.

Tunji-Ojo called on them to imbibe and practise the virtues that entail kindness, love, tolerance, peace, good neighbourliness, and compassion, as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).

“He urged Nigerians to continue in the spirit of unity in order to improve and achieve peace and oneness in the country.

“The minister wishes all Muslim Ummah a happy Eid-el-Fitr celebration and prays that the peace, blessings, and favour of Allah be with everyone and our great nation.”
