The Federal Government has declared Monday and Tuesday a public holiday in Nigeria to mark the Eid-al Fitr celebration.

The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, disclosed this in a statement by the Director of Press in the Ministry, Mohammed Manga, on Thursday.

Aregbesola felicitated with all Muslim faithful for the successful completion of the Ramadan fast.

The Minister urged the 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).

The Minister also lamented the spate of ethnic conflicts that have resurfaced in some parts of Northern Nigeria in recent times.

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

The Minister further urged Muslims to adhere to the COVID-19 guidelines and health regulations as they celebrate.
