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

Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, made the announcement in a statement issued 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.

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

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)”.

Aregbesola further assured Nigerians that the administration of the President Muhammadu Buhari was fully committed to battling the coronavirus disease which has infected over 7,000 persons across the country.
