The Federal Government has declared Monday and Tuesday – May 25 and 26, 2020 – as public holidays to mark Eid-el-Fitri celebration.

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

This was contained in a press statement by the Director of Press in the Ministry, Mohammed Manga, on Thursday.

Aregbesola in a media statement expressed concern over the spate of ethnic conflicts that has resurfaced in some parts of Northern Nigeria in recent times.

He advised “Nigerians to see themselves as a single entity and learn to tolerate one another despite their ethnic and religious differences”.

Aregbesola further assured Nigerians that the regime of the President Muhammadu Buhari was fully committed to battling COVID-19.

He called on Muslim faithful “to replicate the life of kindness, love, tolerance, peace and good neighbourliness as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW)”.

The minister also advised Nigerians to take responsibility against the spread of the COVID-19.
