The Sokoto State Government has declared Friday (today) as public holiday to commemorate the Islamic New Year 1439.

According to a statement issued by Mallam Imam Imam, the spokesman for Governor Aminu Tambuwal the government enjoins the people to use the period of the holiday to pray for the nation and especially for President Muhammadu Buhari.

“This period of the Islamic New Year should remind all people of the countless favours bestowed on them by the Almighty God. As such, the people are enjoined to intensify prayers and engage in acts that will solidify the unity of the nation.


“On a personal level, the government urges all Nigerians to show care, and to love one another. The recent tension in some parts of the country occasioned by activities of some youths should not deter us from caring for one another,” the statement added.

While wishing all Nigerians, especially the Muslim faithful, a happy and peaceful New Year, the statement assured the people of government’s determination to find lasting solutions to the challenges confronting the state.

It equally urged the people to continue with their support for all government policies and programmes.
