FG Declares Tuesday, Wednesday Public Holidays for Sallah

By Olubori Oduntan

Tuesday, August 21 and Wednesday, August 22, 2018 have been declared as public holidays by the federal government.

The two days were set aside to celebrate the 2018 Eid-el-Kabir by Muslims in Nigeria, who will join others across the globe to mark the day.

A statement issued yesterday by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Mr Mohammed Umar, urged Nigerians both at home and abroad to support the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in its determination to foster a peaceful and united Nigeria.

The statement quoted Minister of Interior, Mr Abdulrahman Dambazau, wishing Nigerians a happy Eid-el-Kabir celebration.

He also enjoined the citizens to use the period to embrace the virtues of love and sacrifice for the unity and development of the country.
