Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has declared Friday 14, as work free day in continuation of Eid-el-Fitr celebrations.
The declaration was contained in a statement on Thursday by the state commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba.
TheFact Nigeria Reports that the declaration is coming even as the federal government is yet to announce whether Friday would be a work free day or not.
However, Garba said 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.
The statement said, “the Governor felicitated with the Muslim Ummah on this auspicious period that calls for sober reflection and sharing of goodwill among adherents.
“The 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,” it read.
