Eid-El-Maulud: Aisha Yesufu Slams Federal Government For Declaring Today Public Holiday

The Convener of Bring Back Our Girls Group, Aisha Yesufu, has criticized the federal government of Nigeria for announcing public holiday to celebrate this year’s Eid-El-Maulud.

The BBOG convener described the holiday as wasteful and an act of competitive religiosity.
Aisha urged the Buhari administration to focus on helping Nigerians than otherwise.

In her tweets, she wrote “Nigeria and our need for wasteful holidays. Which one is public holiday for Maulud? When did we start celebrating Maulud?

“When do we stop all this “competitive religiosity” and focus on doing good for humanity?

“The first Maulud to be a public holiday in Nigeria was declared for Monday, 9 March 2009 by Godwin Abbe, then Minister of Interior under Yar’Adua’s administration.”
