Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has come out to declare Friday as work-free day in his state.

The state commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba recently revealed this via a statement, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, there will be no work tomorrow solely to allow Muslim faithful continue with the Eid-el-Fitr celebrations.

He added that the decision was in consideration of the fact that Wednesday, May 12, which was part of the two-day Eid holiday declared by the federal government fell within the 30 days of Ramadan period.

His words, “The Governor felicitated with the Muslim Ummah on this auspicious period that calls for sober reflection and sharing of goodwill among adherents.”

β€œThe Governor urged people in the state to use the occasion, particularly during Juma’at service to pray for peace to continue to reign in the state and the country in general.”
