In a broadcast on Thursday, Sa’ad, the sultan of Sokoto, said his office received information on the sighting of the moon to end the end of the fasting, announcing that Friday, April 21 is the Eid-el-Fitri celebration.


“It is our pleasure to announce that today, Thursday, the 29th of Ramadan 1444 which is equivalent to the 20th of April 2023, marks the end of Ramadan 1444 after hijra of our most Noble leader, Prophet Muhannad (SAW),” the sultan said.

Therefore, we have accepted such reports for they have been confirmed and verified.  I, therefore, declare that tomorrow, Friday 21st April 2023 becomes the 1st day of Shawal 1444 and the day for Eid-el- Fitr.
