The federal government has declared Friday as a public holiday in commemoration of the Muslim Eid-El-Maulud celebration.

Abdulrahman Dambazau, the minister of interior, made the declaration on behalf of the federal government, according to a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja.

The statement was signed by Abubakar Magaji, the permanent secretary of the ministry of interior.

It said Dambazau urged all Muslim faithful and Nigerians in general to use the occasion to pray for peace, progress and unity of the nation.

He further urged all Nigerians to support the President Muhammadu Buhari administration in its efforts at building a virile nation, and wished Nigerians a happy Eid-El-Maulud celebration.
