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

The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration on behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

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

Aregbesola who said development cannot thrive in a rancorous atmosphere 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).
