The Kwara government has declared Monday a work-free day in the state in commemoration of the new Islamic Year, 1446 A.H.

“The first day of the Muharram 1446 falls on Sunday, July 7, 2024, according to many calculations,” Governor Abdulrahman Adulrazaq’s chief press secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, said in a statement on Friday in Ilorin.

“The governor shares in the mixed memories that this occasion brings to the Muslims annually and calls for deeper introspection on the journey of the community and its duty to be the light bearers for tolerance, mutual respect, and justice.”

He said the governor wished Muslims a blessed new Hijrah year.
