Eid-el-Fitr: FG Extends Public Holiday To Thursday 

In an unprecedented decision in recent years, the Federal Government has extended the ongoing Eid-el fitr holiday to Thursday, July 7, making the holiday lasting for three days.

The government had last week declared Tuesday July 5 and Wednesday July 6, 2016 as public holidays
But the the Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, in a statement on Tuesday signed by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Bassey Okon Akpanyung! added Thursday to the two days.

According to the statement, the decision followed the directive by the President-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, and Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, to the effect that the Ramadan fast continues on Tuesday as a result of the non-sighting of the moon

The statement urged Nigerians to use this period of sober reflections to ensure harmony, unity and peaceful co-existence, while giving full support to the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in his sustained effort to pursue socio-economic and political growth of the nation.
