The Nigerian Government has declared Monday and Tuesday as public holidays.
This is to celebrate Eid-el Fitr and Workers Day.
The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, confirmed this in a statement on Thursday.
The statement was issued by the Permanent Secretary, Shuaib Belgore.
Aregbesola noted that labour is the very essence of humanity and that “we are alive because we work and only the dead are incapable of working.”
The Minister also congratulated all Muslims on the successful completion of the holy month of Ramadan.
