The Federal Government has declared Monday and Tuesday as public holidays to mark Eldi Fitri Celebration.


The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government in Abuja.




A statement by the Director of Press in the Ministry, Mohammed Manga, quoted Aregbesola as calling on Muslim faithful to replicate the life of kindness, love, tolerance, peace and good neighbourliness as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).


He advised Nigerians to see themselves as a single entity and learn to tolerate one another despite their ethnic and religious differences.
