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, announced 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 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”.

He however, 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

Stay safe by observing physical and social distancing, personal and respiratory hygiene, as well as other regulations issued by relevant authorities.

As part of his admonition to Muslims on the celebration of Eidul-Fitr and his emphasis on individual responsibility for adherence to the COVID-19 guidelines and regulations, the Minister reminded them to always obey constituted authorities as stated in the Glorious Qu’ran 4:59 where Allah says: “O ye who believe! Obey Allah, & obey the Messenger, & those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah & the Last Day:That is best, & most suitable for final determination”.

Happy Eidul -Fitr Celebration, Ogbeni Aregbesola wishes all Muslim.
