FG declares Tuesday, Wednesday as public holiday


The Federal Government has declared July 5 and 6, 2016, as public holiday to mark the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations.

The Minister of Interior, Lt. Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (retd.), who made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government, on Thursday in Abuja, urged all Muslim faithful and Nigerians in general “to extend the spiritual benefits of Ramadan, which are love, peace and justice to their daily living and through these, contribute to the development of the nation.”

A statement by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Bassey Akpanyung, said Dambazau also urged Nigerians to use the opportunity of “this spiritual rejuvenation to reflect on the imperative of unity and peaceful co-existence in strengthening the bond of togetherness for a strong and virile nation.”

The minister, while wishing Nigerians a peaceful celebration, urged total support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s avowed determination to bequeath to the nation an enduring political legacy.
