Govt extends Public Holiday till Friday to celebrate 2024 Eid-El-Fitr 

In addition to the three-day public holiday declared by the federal government, the governor of Katsina State, Malam Dikko Umar Radda, has declared Friday 12th April, 2024 a work free day.

This was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday by the state commissioner of information and Culture Dr Bala Salisu Zango.

“Katsina State Government decision to declare Friday as work free day follow the good gesture of Federal Government for extending Ed-fitr public holidays to Thursday 11th of this month,” the statement read in part.

The statement added that the governor had taken the step to enable workers in the state fully enjoy the ED-ELFITR Sallah celebration with their families.

Gov Radda then wishes the good people of Katsina state a happy and peaceful Sallah celebration.


He further urged people to be security conscious and pray for peace to reign in the state and the nation at large as they celebrate this year’s Sallah.

Recall that the federal government had earlier declared a two-day public holiday for the Eid-el-Fitr celebrations and had to extend a third day due to the lack of sighting of the moon of Shawwal, taking the holiday to Thursday.
