A release today by  the Ministry of Interior, signed by its Permanent Secretary,  Bassey Okon Akpanyung, said  that the decision to extend the holiday was informed  by  the extension of the Ramadan fast by the President General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, Alhaji Saad Abubakar III, the Sultan of Sokoto, as stakeholders are yet to sight the moon, which indicates end of Ramadan fast.
