The Nigerian government had declared next week Monday and Tuesday as public holidays to mark this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
The Kano State Ministry of Education has approved 10 days of Eid-El- Kabir Sallah break for all public and private primary and post-primary schools in the state.
This was just as the ministry warned that appropriate disciplinary action would be taken against defaulting students.
A statement issued by the spokesman of the state Ministry of Education, Aliyu Yusuf, on Wednesday, urged parents and guardians of pupils and students to take note that the break would commence on Thursday, July 7, to Sunday, July 17, 2022.
“The ministry, therefore, directed that all SS3 students writing NECO, NABTEB and NBAIS examinations as well as students on an exchange programme from other states at GSS Gwarzo and GGSS Shekara are to remain in their respective schools.
“Similarly the ministry has directed all Head Teachers and Principals to ensure that boarding students return to their schools on Sunday, July 17, while Day students resume on Monday, July 18, 2022, respectively, as normal academic activities will start on the resumption day,” the statement read in part.
SaharaReporters earlier today reported that the Nigerian government declared next week Monday and Tuesday as public holidays to mark this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
This had been announced by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, through a statement released on Thursday from his office.
