The federal government has announced Thursday, April 11, 2024, as an additional public holiday for the Eid-El-Fitr celebration.

The extension was announced in a statement by Dr. Aishetu Ndayako, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Interior on Tuesday.

“The Federal Government has approved Thursday, April 11, 2024 as an additional public holiday to celebrate this year’s Eid -El-Fitr.

“The Minister of Interior, Dr Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, while congratulating the Muslim Ummah for a successful completion of a month of spiritual rejuvenation, reiterates President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s firm commitment to providing a safe and prosperous Nigeria for all to thrive”, the statement reads.

Meanwhile, the extension became necessary following failure to sight the moon that would have resulted into the end of the fast on Monday evening.
