Eidul-Fitr 2021: FG Announces Public Holidays

The Federal Government has declared Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th May 2021 as public holidays to mark the Eidul-Fitr 2021.

The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, while making the declaration on behalf of the Nigerian government congratulated the Muslim faithful and called on all Nigerians to use this year’s Eidul-Fitr 2021 celebration to pray for peace, stability and economic transformation in Nigeria.

Aregbesola, who noted that development could not 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.

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

He reemphasised the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to end the scourge of crime and criminality in the country.

The Minister added that the Buhari-led administration would not be deterred in its efforts until every Nigerian and resident of the country is free to move around without fear of any threat.

He said the ruling government is putting necessary measures and strategies in place to strengthen the country’s stability and ensure Nigeria’s economic prosperity.
