The Federal Government has declared Friday, April 21, and Monday, April 24, as public holidays to mark this year’s Eid el-Fitr celebration.
The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration in a statement on Wednesday signed by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Shuaib Belgore.
Aregbesola congratulated all Muslims for the successful completion of the holy month of Ramadan.
Meanwhile, the Federal Road Safety Corps has mobilised logistics and personnel for the Eid-el-Fitri celebration to enhance visibility and guarantee safe travels for all road users before, during and after the celebration in Nigeria.
This was contained in a statement signed by the corps spokesperson, Bisi Kazeem, on Wednesday.
The mobilisation has been scheduled to commence from April 20 and terminate on April 25, 2023.
The Corps Marshal, FRSC, Dauda Biu, mandated “reduction in road traffic crashes, road traffic fatalities and road traffic injuries.”
He tasked his men to ensure “prompt response to road traffic crash victims and engagement of robust public education and enlightenment across all media platforms.”
“Speedy removal of obstructions from the highways, intensified enforcement on critical offences; and adequate supervision, surveillance and monitoring of all commands amongst others must be achieved in the special operations,” he added.
