Nigeria’s government has said that Thursday 30th and Friday 31st July 2020 are public holidays, for the purpose of this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.

Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, announced this in a statement issued and signed Tuesday on his behalf by the permanent secretary in the ministry, Georgina Ehuriah.

He called on Muslims to continue to imbibe the spirit of love, peace, kindness and sacrifice, as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) and to also use the period to pray for peace, unity, prosperity and the stability of the country especially as the world is witnessing global health challenges caused by Covid-19 pandemic.

He also called on all Nigerians to join hands with the federal government to build a peaceful, harmonious and prosperous country, where the rights of every citizen, are protected and guaranteed, as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
