Nigeria’s Federal Government has declared July 5 and 6, ‪2016 public holiday to mark Eid-el Fitri Celebrations.

Minister of Interior, Lt. Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (retd.), revealed this on behalf of the Federal Government on Thursday in Abuja, the nation’s Capital.

The Eid el-Fitr festival marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.

The beginning and end of Islamic months are determined by the sighting of the new moon.

Eid al-Fitr is celebrated on the first day of Shawwal, the 10th month in the Islamic lunar calendar, which is marked by the sighting of a new moon.

Dambazau 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 this 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, virile nation.”

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