Kano declares a public holiday
The Kano State Government has declared Monday August 1, 2022 as a day without work to mark the start of 1445 Islamic New Year (Hijrah).
State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje in a statement signed by Information Commissioner Malam Muhammad Garba on Thursday therefore praised all Muslims in the state for the spiritual significance of the occasion which also calls for self-assessment.
He urged them to use the holiday to seek Allah’s forgiveness and pray for His intervention to save the nation from persistent security problems and improve the general well-being and progress of the state and the country in general.
Governor Ganduje assured the people of his administration’s resolve to continue steadfastly delivering on its promise to improve their standard of living through the execution of people-centred programs and projects.
He therefore called on those who have not yet obtained their voter card to do so.
