Federal Government has declared Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th May, 2021 as public holidays to mark this year’s Eid Al Fitr celebration.

Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government in Abuja on Monday.

He congratulated Muslim faithful on this occasion and called on all Nigerians, at home and abroad to use the period of this year’s Eid Al Fitr celebration to pray for peace, stability and economic transformation in the land.

 

Aregbesola in a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Dr Shuaib Belgore urged all Nigerians to be law-abiding and embrace the spirit of love, self-discipline, kindness and tolerance, as taught by the Holy Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him).

He also called on all security agencies in the country to be more courageous and patriotic to surmount the ongoing battle against resurging insecurity and activities of criminal elements in Nigeria.

The Minister assured that the resolve of President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to end the scourge of crime and criminality in the country and restore peace to every nook and cranny of Nigeria was sacrosanct.

 

Aregbesola stated;

This administration will not be deterred in its efforts, until every Nigerian and resident of the country, is free to move around without fear of any threat to his/her life and property. We are therefore putting necessary measures and strategies in place to strengthen the stability of the country as well as ensuring economic prosperity of our dear nation.

The Minister wishes all Muslims a happy and peaceful Eidul-Fitr .
