FG Declares Public Holiday for Eid-ul-Mawlid Celebration

Tuesday has been declared a public holiday by the federal government.

FG said the holiday will be held on October 19th, 2021 to mark this year’s Eid-ul-Mawlid celebration.
The holiday would be in commemoration of the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).
Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, made this declaration on behalf of the Federal Government.
He congratulated all Muslim faithful at home and in the Diaspora for witnessing this year’s occasion.
The Minister, in a statement by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Dr Shuaib Belgore, admonished all Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of love, patience, and perseverance which are the virtues of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), adding that doing so would guarantee peace and security in the country.
Aregbesola enjoined Nigerians, particularly Muslims, to refrain from violence, lawlessness, and other acts of criminality.
“As the indisputable leader of our race, we must show responsible leadership in Africa,” he asserted.
While calling for a stop to all divisive tendencies across the country, the Minister urged all Nigerians and the youth in particular, to embrace the virtues of hard work and peaceful disposition to fellow humans, irrespective of faith, ideology, social class and ethnicity and cooperate with President Muhammadu Buhari’s led-administration in its effort to build a progressive and enviable nation that all citizens would be proud of.
