The Federal Government of Nigeria has declared Friday, April 21, and Monday, April 24, 2023, as public holidays in commemoration of the Eid-el-Fitr festival.

The announcement was made by the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, on behalf of the Federal Government.

In a statement by the Permanent Secretary, Dr M.L. Shuaib Belgor, the Minister congratulated all Muslims for the successful completion of the holy month of Ramadan.

Aregbesola urged Muslims to uphold the values of kindness, love, tolerance, peace, self-denial, sacrifice, and good neighborliness as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).

He added that the virtues displayed during the fasting period should not end but should be maintained and improved upon, as it is the path to becoming better persons and true worshippers.

The Minister also assured Nigerians of the government’s commitment to providing security for the lives and properties of all citizens and foreigners in the country.

He commended all security agencies for their successes in fighting criminals across the nation.

Aregbesola called on Nigerians to be part of the nation’s security architecture by being vigilant and reporting suspicious individuals and activities to law enforcement agencies nearest to them.

He also urged Nigerians to report suspicious activities and persons to the N-Alert application.

Furthermore, the Minister admonished Nigerians to remain calm as the government is fully committed to a peaceful transition of government following successful elections.

He also wished all Muslims a happy Eid-el-Fitr celebration, praying that the peace, blessings, and favor of Allah be with them all.

The Eid-el-Fitr festival is a significant celebration in the Muslim calendar that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, a period of fasting, prayer, and reflection.

The festival usually spans three days, and it is marked with prayers, feasting, and exchanging of gifts among Muslims.
